In May 1994, Mstislav Rostropovich visited the Prietos--and played the Piatti--while he was in Mexico City for a series of performances. Here, the two cellists examine the score of Shostakovich's Cello Concerto No. 1. “Rostropovich's vitality and energy are boundless, as are his invaluable contributions to the cello and to the world of music itself,” wrote Prieto in his book The Adventures of a Cello.
