Along with Sádlo, Večtomov was considered one of Czechoslovakia's leading classical artists, [ citation needed ] drawing comparisons in the international press to Russian cellist Mstislav Rostropovich , who had been his contemporary at the Moscow Conservatory. Večtomov was best known for his inimitably sweet tone. “As the concerto develops, it is clear that Večtomov, so august a member of the Czech Trio, was certainly a big enough concerto soloist, but one who does not seek to impose his personality onto the music. Instead he illuminates it from within.” [2] Of the same recording, Fanfare observed: “I am glad to have discovered Saša Večtomov’s playing, for on this evidence he was a world-class artist … his aristocratic playing deserves a hearing, and the disc should certainly be of interest to cellists and collectors."
