About the Author

Janos Starker (1924-2013) was Distinguished Professor of Cello in the School of Music at Indiana University. He held five honorary doctorates, and was a former principal cellist with the Metropolitan Opera and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. He made more than 100 commercial recordings and gave world premiere performances of countless recital works by important composers. Among his many awards and honors is the 1997 Grammy Award for Best Recording by a Soloist without Accompaniment for his recording of Bach's Six Suites for Solo Cello.


"Few cello players currently before the public have enjoyed the kind of international success in all conceivable musical career roles as Janos Starker. In his lifetime, Starker has gained renown as teacher, soloist and orchestra player." --Chicago Tribune "Starker ...remains one of the wonders of the musical world, an artist who finds innumerable ways to shape and color lines." --Cleveland Plain Dealer "Starker is not just a cellist. He is widely recognized as one of the finest of the last 50 years." --Indianapolis Star
