    Mstislav Ros­tropovich was born in Baku, Azer­bai­jan SSR, to par­ents who had moved from Oren­burg: Leopold Vi­toldovich Rostropovich[ru], a renowned cel­list and for­mer stu­dent of Pablo Casals, and Sofiya Niko­laevna Fe­do­tova-Ros­tropovich, a tal­ented pianist. Mstislav's fa­ther (1892–1942) was born in Voronezh to Witold Rostropowicz[ru], a com­poser of Pol­ish noble de­scent, and Matilda Ros­tropovich, née Pule of Be­laru­sian de­scent. The Pol­ish part of his fam­ily bore the Bo­go­ria coat of arms, which was lo­cated at the fam­ily palace in Skot­niki. Mstislav's mother Sofiya came from a Russ­ian-Jew­ish back­ground, and was the daugh­ter of mu­si­cians, the con­duc­tor Niko­lay Alexan­drovich and the pi­anist Olga Sergeevna.Her elder sis­ter Nadezhda mar­ried the cel­list Se­myon Ko­zolupov, who was thus Ros­tropovich's uncle by marriage. Ros­tropovich grew up in Baku and spent his youth there. Dur­ing World War II his fam­ily moved back to Oren­burg and then in 1943 to...

    Ros­tropovich gave his first cello con­cert in 1942. He won first prize at the in­ter­na­tional Music Awards of Prague and Bu­dapest in 1947, 1949 and 1950. In 1950, at the age of 23 he was awarded what was then con­sid­ered the high­est dis­tinc­tion in the So­viet Union, the Stalin Prize. At that time, Ros­tropovich was al­ready well known in his coun­try and while ac­tively pur­su­ing his solo ca­reer, he taught at the Leningrad (Saint-Pe­ters­burg) Con­ser­va­tory and the Moscow Con­ser­va­tory.In 1955, he mar­ried Galina Vish­nevskaya, a lead­ing so­prano at the Bol­shoi The­atre. Ros­tropovich had work­ing re­la­tion­ships with So­viet com­posers of the era. In 1949 Sergei Prokofiev wrote his Cello Sonata in C, Op. 119, for the 22-year-old Ros­tropovich, who gave the first per­for­mance in 1950, with Svi­atoslav Richter. Prokofiev also ded­i­cated his Sym­phony-Con­certo to him; this was pre­miered in 1952. Ros­tropovich and Dmitry Ka­balevsky com­pleted Prokofiev's Cello Con­...

    Ros­tropovich played at The Proms on the night of 21 Au­gust 1968. He played with the So­viet State Sym­phony Or­ches­tra – it was the or­ches­tra's debut per­for­mance at the Proms. The pro­gramme fea­tured Czech com­poser Antonín Dvořák's Cello Con­certo in B minor and took place on the same day that the War­saw Pact in­vaded Czecho­slo­va­kia to end Alexan­der Dubček's Prague Spring. After the per­for­mance, which had been pre­ceded by heck­ling and demon­stra­tions, the or­ches­tra and soloist were cheered by the Proms audience.Ros­tropovich stood and held aloft the con­duc­tor's score of the Dvořák as a ges­ture of sol­i­dar­ity for the com­poser's home­land and the city of Prague, a place he loved. As an en­core he played the Sara­bande from the Suite No. 2 in D minor, BWV 1008 by Jo­hann Se­bas­t­ian Bach, a piece that he said he liked to offer to those who were sad.

    Ros­tropovich fought for art with­out bor­ders, free­dom of speech, and de­mo­c­ra­tic val­ues, re­sult­ing in ha­rass­ment from the So­viet regime. An early ex­am­ple was in 1948, when he was a stu­dent at the Moscow Con­ser­va­tory. In re­sponse to the 10 Feb­ru­ary 1948 de­cree on so-called 'for­mal­ist' com­posers, his teacher Dmitri Shostakovich was dis­missed from his pro­fes­sor­ships in Leningrad and Moscow; the 21-year-old Ros­tropovich quit the con­ser­va­tory, drop­ping out in protest. Ros­tropovitch also smug­gled to the West the man­u­script of Shostakovich’s Sym­phony No. 13, em­pha­siz­ing So­viet in­dif­fer­ence to the Babi Yar mas­sacre. In 1970, Ros­tropovich shel­tered Alek­sandr Solzhen­it­syn, who oth­er­wise would have had nowhere to go, in his own home. His friend­ship with Solzhen­it­syn and his sup­port for dis­si­dents led to of­fi­cial dis­grace in the early 1970s. As a re­sult, Ros­tropovich was re­stricted from for­eign touring, as was his wife, so­prano...

    On De­cem­ber 17, 1988, Ros­tropovich gave a spe­cial con­cert at Bar­bi­can Hall in Lon­don, after post­pon­ing a trip to India for the Ar­men­ian Earth­quake re­lief pro­gram. The event was part of an ef­fort called Mu­si­cians for Armenia,which was ex­pected to raise more than $450,000 from do­na­tions world­wide, in­clud­ing gifts from mu­si­cians, con­cert pro­ceeds and film and record­ing rights. Prince Charles and the Princess of Wales at­tended the con­cert in the sold-out 2,026-seat con­cert hall. On Feb­ru­ary 7, 1989, a cello con­cert was or­ga­nized by the Ar­men­ian Re­lief So­ci­ety and the Vol­un­teers Tech­ni­cal As­sis­tance (VTA) for the vic­tims of the Spi­tak Earth­quake. The cello con­cert par ex­cel­lence with Mstislav Ros­tropovich in­ter­pret­ing his fa­vorite and best cello reper­toire, in­clud­ing Dvořák's Cello Con­certo in B minor; Haydn's cello con­certo in C and D; Prokofiev's Sym­phony-Con­certo; the two cello con­certi of Shostakovich, and oth­ers. Th...

    Ros­tropovich's health de­clined in 2006, with the Chicago Tri­bunere­port­ing ru­mours of un­spec­i­fied surgery in Geneva and later treat­ment for what was re­ported as an ag­gra­vated ulcer. Russ­ian Pres­i­dent Vladimir Putin vis­ited Ros­tropovich to dis­cuss de­tails of a cel­e­bra­tion the Krem­lin was plan­ning for 27 March 2007, Ros­tropovich's 80th birth­day. Ros­tropovich at­tended the cel­e­bra­tion but was re­port­edly in frail health. Though Ros­tropovich's last home was in Paris, he main­tained res­i­dences in Moscow, Saint Pe­ters­burg, Lon­don, Lau­sanne, and Jor­danville, New York. Ros­tropovich was ad­mit­ted to a Paris hos­pi­tal at the end of Jan­u­ary 2007, but then de­cided to fly to Moscow, where he had been re­ceiv­ing care. On 6 Feb­ru­ary 2007 the 79-year-old Ros­tropovich was ad­mit­ted to a hos­pi­tal in Moscow. "He is just feel­ing un­well", Na­talya Dolezhale, Ros­tropovich's sec­re­tary in Moscow, said.[This quote needs a citation]Asked if there was s...

    Ros­tropovich was a huge in­flu­ence on the younger gen­er­a­tion of cel­lists. Many have openly ac­knowl­edged their debt to his ex­am­ple. In the Daily Tele­graph, Ju­lian Lloyd Web­bercalled him "prob­a­bly the great­est cel­list of all time." Ros­tropovich ei­ther com­mis­sioned or was the re­cip­i­ent of com­po­si­tions by many com­posers in­clud­ing Dmitri Shostakovich, Sergei Prokofiev, Ben­jamin Brit­ten, Henri Du­tilleux, Olivier Mes­si­aen, André Jo­livet, Witold Lutosławski, Lu­ciano Berio, Krzysztof Pen­derecki, Leonard Bern­stein, Al­fred Schnit­tke, Aram Khacha­turian, Astor Pi­az­zolla, An­dreas Makris, Sofia Gubaidulina, Arthur Bliss, Colin Matthews and Lopes Graça. His com­mis­sions of new works en­larged the cello reper­toire more than any pre­vi­ous cel­list: he gave the pre­miere of 117 compositions. Ros­tropovich is also well known for his in­ter­pre­ta­tions of stan­dard reper­toire works, in­clud­ing Dvořák's Cello Con­certo in B minor and Haydn's cello con­ce...
