IN MEMORIAM JANOS STARKER (1924-2013)
Only Janos Starker could propose such a program as difficult for the instrument as poorly rewarding for the instrumentalist:
the artist must fully express the lyricism from these scores from XXth century. At that time, he was play a very rare cello from
Stradivarius, then a Matteo Goffriller (Venezia, 1659-1742) for Martinu’s score. A true image of a master, often considered as
too full of composure but who does not hide here his exceptional lyric power.
