Rostropovich discharged from Hospital

Posted at 10:18 AM on March 7, 2007 by John Zech

The great Russian cellist, Mstislav Rostropovich, went into the hospital in Moscow last month under rather hush-hush circumstances. The C word was being used a lot in speculations about his health, but people are keeping mum.

The good news is (maybe) that he was discharged from the hospital yesterday and "feels well" according to his press secretary.

The story was filed on the A-P this past hour.
