Tartini: Cello Concerto in A, Allegro Assai

Can you guess this piece? Here’s a hint: A cocktail in La Brea.

Mstislav Rostropovich, known to close friends as “Slava,” is widely considered to have been one of the greatest cellists of the 20th century, and is considered by some of his peers to have been the greatest cellist of all time. In addition to his outstanding interpretations and technique, he was well-known for his commissions of new works which enlarged the cello repertoire more than any cellist before or since. He gave the premieres of over 100 pieces.
