RIP Slava

Russian cellist/dissident Mstislav 'Slava' Rostropovich died on April 27th. Newsday ran a very good obituary for him but there's also a some wonderful clips on YouTube of his work. The 1962 performance above is my personal favorite but I also recommend this beautiful Bach cello suite from his later years.
