This performance by Starker and Sebok has hit me when I started cello. The music sounds like whispering his thought in my ear. It is a passion in melancholy typical for youth. Starker was playing with sharp bowing technique. Yes, he has inspired me one of the best performance style and spirit of this music in my young days.
He has died at the age of 88 years on Apr 28. Rest in peace, my dear great cellist!
