Who played the cello solo in the Reiner Gilels Chicago Symphony recording of the second Brahms piano concerto?

AnswerI believe it's Janos Starker, who was principal cello of the CSO at the timeof the recording. Now he's a cello professor at Indiana University.It's not Starker. He left the orchestra in 1958. And he's now dead. The cellist in question was Robert LaMarchina. You can read about him at . He had a giant talent but serious personal problems and wound up on the musical sidelines and dying a lonely death. He's credited on some of the reissues of the recording.Mr. Starker is still very much alive, well, and active in Bloomington, Indiana at the time of this posting - July 2008.The first and third answers are indeed correct. Mr. Starker played on the record in his last season with Chicago. And he is still alive at the time of this posting - September 2009. Robert Lamarchina, who however has died, played the solos when the orchestra recorded the concerto just a couple of years later, with Svjatoslav Richter, during the 1960-61 season. The conductor of that session, Richter's debut on American records, was Erich Leinsdorf, stepping in for an ailing Fritz Reiner.
