Mstislav Rostropovich has died . The Russian conductor and cellist was a world-renown figure in the field of classical music. Curiously, I met him once while I was playing in a restaurant in Watford about nine or ten years ago and he was recording with an orchestra locally. A very warm character, one of the last of the old school virtuosi and a very interesting person.
