    Although not an international touring artist, he can certainly keep up with the best of the best. I've seen him perform several times locally with his group.

    Slava Rostropovich gets my vote.
    *If a man wants God to hear his prayer quickly, then before he prays for anything else, even his own soul, when he stands and stretches out his hands towards God, he must pray with all his heart for his enemies. Through this action God will hear everything that he asks* -Abba Zeno-

    *Protagoras: "Truth is subjective. What is true for you, and what is true for me, is true for me. Your opinion is true by virtue of its being your opinion."

    *Socrates: "My opinion is: Truth is absolute, not opinion, and that you are in absolute error. Since this is my opinion, then according to your philosophy you must grant that it is true."

    I think there are two cellist in the group Electric Light Orchestra that I
    like. It does seem a little odd that cellist would show up in a rock n roll
    band but these guys were extraordinary.

    I myself have not decided yet each and every single one of these cellists have good reasons why they should be the one.

    Can't decide either.

    Yoyo Ma is pretty good too...

    Favorite and best are very different categories. Sometimes they might overlap, but not necessarily. So I'll only respond to the first: Jeffrey Krieger.

    Though most important would have to be Charlotte Moorman, of course!
