Classical music suffers a great loss

Rostropovich had a long and distinguished career as a cellist and as a conductor. I wasn't much interested in classical music, in fact, until I heard his recording of the Bach cello suites. Sure, I had played a lot, but I had absolutely no interest in it beyond what I was working up for competitions. It wasn't until I heard the cello suites that I began to change my mind.

As a conductor, I'm sure he was equally magnificent. I must confess, I know next to nothing about classical music beyond performance. I guess I still have quite a lot to learn.

Very sad day, indeed.
