Tchaikovsky Recital (Vishnevskaya/Rostropovich)

This week I’m still exploring the role of the accompanist, especially from unusual, unsuspected talents. Here is soprano Galina Vishnevskaya who married the famous cellist Rostropovich, but here Rostropovich is at the piano for an entire recital of Tchaikovsky. He plays wonderfully. Sometimes you have to get close to the original source and these two really get Tchaikovsky. It seems Rostropovich could make music on anything. What a gift.
