Cellist met hartstocht
Tien jaar na zijn dood is Mstislav Rostropovitsj nog lang niet vergeten. De charismatische cellist zou deze maand negentig zijn geworden. Warner gedenkt dit met een monumentale box waarin veertig cd’s, drie dvd’s en een dik boekwerk zijn verzameld onder de noemer Cellist of the century.

Hoe belangrijk Rostropovitsj ook is geweest, ‘cellist van de eeuw’ lijkt toch iets te veel eer. ‘De grootste cellist van de tweede helft van de twintigste eeuw’ zou meer op zijn plaats zijn, want de eerste helft komt toch echt toe aan Pablo Casals. De vader van Rostropovitsj had trouwens nog les gehad van Casals, lang voordat hij zijn zoon de eerste beginselen van het spel bijbracht. ‘Slava’, zoals Mstislav van jongs af aan werd genoemd, was toen acht jaar oud. Hij ging reeds als kind in het openbaar optreden en maakte op zijn dertiende zijn debuut met orkest in het Eerste celloconcert van Saint-Saëns. Kort na de Tweede Wereldoorlog werd hij beschouwd als een van de grootste musici van de Sovjet-Unie. Hij onderhield nauwe relaties met Sjostakovitsj en Prokofjev, hoewel deze componisten in die jaren zwaar onder vuur kwamen te liggen van het regime. Rostropovitsj bracht de zomers door in de datsja van Prokofjev. Sjostakovitsj gaf hem compositieles en zou later zijn twee celloconcerten aan hem opdragen.

In de jaren vijftig en zestig liet Rostropovitsj zich ook in het Westen horen met spraakmakende tournees. Hij raakte bevriend met Benjamin Britten, die speciaal voor hem een cellosonate, een cellosymfonie en drie solosuites componeerde. Ook andere componisten lieten zich door hem inspireren, van Dutilleux tot Lutoslawski en van Penderecki tot Schnittke. Zo heeft Rostropovitsj het cellorepertoire aanzienlijk uitgebreid.

Zijn internationale carrière kwam in gevaar toen hij en zijn echtgenote, de sopraan Galina Visjnevskaja, Aleksandr Solzjenitsyn gingen steunen en hem zelfs in hun datsja buiten Moskou lieten wonen. De auteur stond bekend als dissident en had jaren doorgebracht in strafkampen, zoals beschreven in zijn Goelag Archipel. Rostropovitsj en zijn vrouw mochten eerst niet meer in het buitenland optreden, werden in 1974 verbannen en verloren uiteindelijk in 1978 het staatsburgerschap van de Sovjet-Unie.

Toen hij op een morgen in november 1989 in zijn Parijse appartement op de radio hoorde dat de Berlijnse Muur was gevallen, vloog hij spontaan naar Berlijn om voor de muur bij Checkpoint Charlie suites van Bach te spelen. Tussen Rostropovitsj en Rusland is het toch nog goed gekomen. Boris Jeltsin ontving de gelauwerde musicus met open armen na de ondergang van het communisme en Vladimir Poetin onderscheidde hem kort voor zijn dood met de orde van verdienste voor het vaderland, eerste klasse.

In de uitgave van Warner is geen plaats ingeruimd voor Rostropovitsj’ werk als dirigent, maar is zijn carrière als cellist op de voet te volgen. Dertien van de veertig cd’s zijn al in 1997 door EMI gebundeld als ‘The Russian years’. Ze bevatten historische opnamen uit de jaren 1950-1974 met veel muziek die aan hem is opgedragen door uiteenlopende componisten als Prokofjev, Sjostakovitsj, Britten, maar ook Katsjatoerian, Schnittke en zelfs Oestvolskaja en Piazzolla.

Onder de pianisten die hem begeleiden, bevinden zich Svjatoslav Richter en Sjostakovitsj zelf, onder de dirigenten legendarische figuren als Rozjdestvenski, Svetlanov en Kondrasjin. In Beethovens Tripelconcert vormt hij een trio met David Oistrach en Svjatoslav Richter. De gouden jaren van de muziek in de Sovjet-Unie trekken weer voorbij.

Daarnaast bevat de box een schat aan studio-opnamen die in het Westen zijn gemaakt. Het Celloconcert van Dvorák komt wel driemaal voor (onder leiding van Adrian Boult, Carlo Maria Giulini en Seiji Ozawa), het Dubbelconcert van Brahms tweemaal, met David Oistrach en het Cleveland Orchestra onder leiding van George Szell (1969) en met Itzhak Perlman en het Concertgebouworkest onder leiding van Bernard Haitink (1985).

Wat opvalt, is dat Rostropovitsj in de loop der jaren excentrieker is gaan spelen, soms met groteske resultaten, maar altijd spat de hartstocht ervan af. De gulle warmte die hij uitstraalde en de onnavolgbare nuances in de toon waarmee hij de verste hoeken van de zaal vulde, kenmerkten ook zijn optredens in het Amsterdamse Concertgebouw.

Pas toen hij al in de zestig was, in 1991, besloot hij alle zes de solosuites van Bach op te nemen, ook voor hem de kroon op het cellorepertoire. Hij koos zelf de locatie uit, de Basilique Sainte-Marie-Madeleine in Vézelay, omdat de akoestiek en de romaanse architectuur van dit twaalfde- eeuwse monument hem buitengewoon inspireerden. Het is te zien en te horen op twee dvd’s, die mede deze uitgave maken tot een monument voor de grootste cellist van de tweede helft van de twintigste eeuw.
