Mstislav Rostropovich's Modern Torchbearer: Cellist Johannes Moser

This week marks the birth of the celebrated 20th-century Russian cellist and conductor Mstislav Rostropovich. As WRTI’s Susan Lewis reports, one of his recordings with Eugene Ormandy and The Philadelphia Orchestra motivated one of today’s leading concert soloists, Johannes Moser, to pursue his career. 

Listen to cellist Johannes Moser speak with WRTI's Susan Lewis about the power of Shostakovich's music, and how he discovered it on Rostropovich's recording with The Philadelphia Orchestra.
