The cellists of the National Symphony will open a tribute concert to cellist Mstislav 'Slava' Rostropovich, the orchestra's former music director who died in his native Russia last week at 80.
The free concert, scheduled for May 19 at the Kennedy Center, will begin with an ensemble arrangement of the Sarabande from Bach's D major suite for unaccompanied cello.
