Composer: Henri Dutilleux, Witold Lutoslawski

Among Mstislav Rostropovich's many achievements was his enrichment of the cello repertoire. His passion for the music of his own time encouraged composers to create many dozens of works for him to perform. The two concertos on this disc, by Henri Dutilleux (1916-2013) and Witold Lutoslawski (1913-1994), are both modern classics, reflecting Tostropovich's spirit as they push the boundaries of instrumental possibility while exciting and challenging the audience.
