Autographed 4.25” x 6.5” photograph of the Russian cellist and conductor signed in Cyrillic, October 24, 2001.

Rostropovich is making a grand gesture backstage in white tie and tails!

Rostropovich (1927-2007) was a pupil of his Father and Semyon Kosolupov.  Perhaps the most recorded cellist of the 20th Century, his fame rests with the greats of the period; Pablo Casals, Emanuel Feuermann and Gregor Piatigorsky.  Rostropovich was also Music Director of the National Symphony Orchestra in Washington D.C. from 1977 to 1994.

Rostropovich came to the United States in 1974 with his family.  The Soviet Union stripped him of his citizenship in 1978.  It was not until the fall of Communism there that his citizenship was restored in 1990.

A sensational original photograph of “Slava” in his element!
