About

Prokofiev was in poor health and making fewer public appearances when he asked Rostropovich for help in rewriting Concerto Op. 58. Slava premiered the work, renamed Symphony-Concerto Op.125, and worked on the unfinished Concertino Op.132. He waited until 1st March 1950 to premiere Op.119 with Sviatoslav Richter, a piece he played more than a hundred times during his career. It was to become a cello & piano classic, gloriously following in the wake of Beethovenís Op. 69.
