Cellist Mstislav Rostropovich has an even bigger tone. But cellist Ralph Kirshbaum has the biggest tone of all. Indeed, the sheer density and intensity of his tone seem too massive to be coming from a mere cello - if one didn't know better, one might swear he was playing a bass. And yet, as he shows in these breathtaking performances of Prokofiev and Shostakovich's cello sonatas with an encore by Rachmaninov, Kirshbaum has dexterity as well as density - listen to him negotiate the thorniest passages in the Prokofiev with utmost ease - and virtuosity as well as intensity - listen.

There is no way in a 2 or 3 minute lesson to teach a subject completely, so realize that every lesson by itself is incomplete! All the little pieces of technique affect and inform each other, so watching bundles of related lessons really helps. A collection of isolated cello lessons that the player doesn't integrate is missing the point.
Ralph Kirshbaum on cello and Peter Jablonski on piano Sunday. Three-fourths of Sunday’s duo concert at the Frick Collection on Sunday offered 20th-century Russian updates of a 19th-century Romantic sensibility. Ralph Kirshbaum, cellist, and Peter Jablonski, pianist, played a Sonata in C by Prokofiev and another in D minor by Shostakovich, adding Rachmaninoff’s Vocalise, happily adapted here for the cello. The other piece was a little different: Debussy’s Sonata for Cello and Piano . One of the Russian sonatas found Shostakovich, at 28, singing a winning melody in enormous long breaths and setting it against country-style dance music. It was 1934 and a little before the composer’s famous run-in with Stalin.
In 2007 he recorded cello sonatas of Prokofiev and Shostakovich with Ralph Kirshbaum for Altara label. Jablonski’s extensive discography includes recordings he has made for Decca, Deutsche Grammophon, Philips, and Altara labels for over twenty years. He received numerous awards for his recordings, which include the Edison award for best concerto recording of Shostakovich’s First Piano Concerto, Rachmaninov’s Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini, and Lutoslawski’s Paganini Rhapsody with Ashkenazy and RPO for Decca.
Meanwhile, Peter’s interest developed in the classical piano repertoire which led to his first solo performance aged eleven and his debut with orchestra, playing Mozart’s piano concerto in G, . 53 the following year. At this time he was accepted to the Malmo Academy of Music to pursue studies in piano and percussion and by the time of his graduation he was invited to perform Beethoven’s Concerto N. with the Swedish, Danish and Polish radio orchestras. Other recordings include the complete concertos of Tchaikovsky conducted by Peter Maag and Charles Dutoit, the Scriabin concerto and Prometheus with Vladimir Ashkenazy, the complete sonatas by Prokofiev and several other discs with solo works by Chopin, Liszt, Mussorgsky, Grieg and the cello sonatas of Prokofiev & Shostakovich with Ralph Kirshbaum.
