Homage to Rostropovich
Photos Sergey Koshkin

Russian musician Denis Shapovalov presented two performances as an homage to cellist and conductor Mstislav Rostropovich, whose birthday is on March 27. For the first time, the occasion was marked without the presence of the maestro himself, who passed away on April 27, 2007. Shapovalov played two concerts in memory of his mentor, inviting American conductor Christian Bade to lead the Moscow Symphony Orchestra and the St. Petersburg Philharmonic Orchestra at a concert in each city. The programs for the concerts included Dvorak’s Carnival Overture, Rachmaninoff’s Symphony No. 2, Schumann’s Cello Concerto, and Rococo Variations by Tchaikovsky.
