A benchmark against which others should be measured……

…..I feel I can say this confidently. Many years ago, I compared Starker’s performance to the Rostropovich performance and I preferred Mr. Starker’s hands down. His technique and the brilliance of his Strad. By comparison, the cello that Rostropovich performed on sounded gutsy and constipated in my own opinion. But I digress…. Mr. Starker is an inspiration. I have his performance of the Bach Suites – the recordings between 1963 and 65. Thank you Mr. Starker.
