About

This box is a collection of some of the finest recordings made by the master cellist Janos Starker. His death in 2013 prompted warm obituaries across the world’s press, and this collection celebrates his life’s work.

It includes key cello works in distinguished performances, from Bach’s cornerstone solo suites, to some lesser known Italian Sonatas, the two classic Brahms sonatas, and concertos by Schumann, Dvorák, Lalo and Saint-Saëns.

The accompanying booklet includes three separate elements – an overview on Starker’s contribution to recording, Starker’s recording notes and the original album essays.
