ON THIS DAY | Happy Birthday, Mischa Maisky!!
Today is Soviet-born Israeli cellist Mischa Maisky’s 74th birthday.
Maisky has the honor of being the only cellist to have studied with both Piatigorsky and Rostropovich.
A prizewinner at the International Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow, Rostropovich has praised Mischa Maisky as "...one of the most outstanding talents of the younger generation of cellists. His playing combines poetry and exquisite delicacy with great temperament and brilliant technique."
An exclusive Deutsche Grammophon artist during the last 25 years, he made well over 30 recordings with such orchestras as Vienna and Berlin Philharmonic, London Symphony, Israel Philharmonic, Orchestre de Paris, Orpheus und Chamber Orchestra of Europe, and others.
