In the first part of the show, we finished Sviatoslav Richter's 1976 recording of Bach's Well-Tempered Clavier, Book II, which we had started a few weeks ago. The show concluded with another legendary Russian interpreter of Bach, Mstislav Rostropovich, playing the C minor Suite for unaccompanied cello.
