Fantastic Swedish cellist...
I want to tip about this fantastic Swedish cellist and cellists teacher, Frans Helmerson!!
I heard him live in the town I live in, playing solo, Bach solo cello sonatas... And have seen programs on TV with him and students...
From another site.
And about one of his teachers, Mstislav Rostropovich with a recording with him. Sounds as a Haydn- or Mozart-concerto!!?? My music-history isn't very fresh, but it must be Haydn not Mozart!? I don't think Mozart did any concertos for cello. Maybe I should check in my reference books?? No, it isn't Mozart! I was right, he never composed any concertos for cello!!
Interview with Helmerson.
The links from www.cellist.nl doesn't seem to function, here is one on Helmerson from A Swedish site (in English).
