Tchaikovsky Rococo Variations.

I've recently become enamored with this piece.  My reference is Jovan Starker's 1964 performance with the LSO on the Mercury Living Presence label (Tidal MQA).  I prefer it to Rostropovich/Berlin Philharmonic on Deutche Grammophon (also Tidal MQA) primarily because of the orchestra.  I really enjoy the relaxed, luxurious, expansive yet pristine sound coupled with impeccable musicianship.  I'm fairly new to classical so I'm asking for some recommendations for similar music, although it does not have to be cello or even strings.  Any ideas are appreciated!

Thanks to all who replied...however, I wasn't looking for more recommendations on performances of of this piece.  Instead, using this piece as an example and my descriptors of what I found appealing about it, I was asking for more recommendations of classical music that I might enjoy.  I hope this clarifies my original intent.
