The cellist seems to have cracked the secret of eternal youth.

Official birthday portrait by Bernard Rosenberg.

A Latvian with Israeli citizenship and Belgian residence, he studied in Moscow with Mstistlav Rostropovich until the Soviets jailed him, then slammed him in a mental hospital. He fled the country in 1972, debuted at Carnegie Hall the following year and has been a light of our musical life ever since.
