Child prodigy
Starker was born in Budapest to a father of Polish descent and a mother who had immigrated from Ukraine, both Jewish.

Format: Audio CD
Janos Starker is truly one of the great cellists of the twentieth century. On this delightful collection of music for cello and piano from 1962-63, Starker is joined by frequent partner Gyorgy Sebok. This disc is built around two compositions by Chopin -- the Sonata in G Minor (Op. 65) and the Polonaise Brillante (Op. 3). Starker and Sebok blaze through both these pieces at a much quicker tempo than say Yo-Yo Ma and Emanuel Ax do on their 1992 Sony recording. The result makes for interesting and exciting listening, but I prefer the more relaxed mood set by Ma and Ax. The real gems on this album are lesser known, seldom recorded works by Mendelssohn, Martinu, Weiner and Bartok, not to mention the wonderful first Debussy Sonata. In all, an excellent collection for cello enthusiasts.

Another of the historic Mercury Living Presence recordings made by Janos Starker. Everything on the record is wonderful, but for me the highlights are the Debussy sonata and the Bartok First Rhapsody. I saw Starker teach the Bartok to Maria Kliegel in a Ravinia master class in the early 1970s. This is the benchmark recording of that piece.
