Sacred path of the cello warrior

'The way of cowardice is to embed ourselves in a cocoon, in which we perpetuate our habitual patterns. When we are constantly recreating our basic patterns of habits and thought, we never have to leap into fresh air or onto fresh ground' - Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche, Shambala: The Sacred Path of the Warrior
The fresh ground in Warner's super-budget 9 CD Rostropovich box includes Cristóbal Halffter's Cello Concerto No. 2, André Jolivet's Cello Concerto No.2, Norbert Moret's Cello Concerto, Darius Milhaud's Cello Concerto No. 1, Alun Hoddinott's Noctis Equi, Krzysztof Penderecki's Cello Concerto No. 2, Arthur Honegger's Cello Concerto, and works by Renaud Gagneux, Rodion Shchedrin, Marcel Landowski and Alexander Knaifel.
