DVORAK: Violoncello Concerto in B minor, Op. 104 (2 CD Set) composed by Antonin Dvorak (1841-1904). For cello. Instrumental Solo Part and 2 CDs. Published by Music Minus One (MO.MMOCD3701).
Dvorak's famed violoncello concerto was inspired by famed 'cellist/composer Victor Herbert's own violoncello concerti. Dvorak went on to write this, one of the treasured masterpieces of the concerted cello repertoire. An absolute must for any serious cellist, and for anyone who loves beautiful music in the Romantic idiom. Sumptuous orchestrations in Dvorak's trademark style, long lyrical lines and beautiful use of the instrument's upper ranges. Wonderful for performer and audience alike.
Includes a high-quality printed solo part and two compact discs containing a complete performance with soloist; then a second version with the orchestral accompaniment, minus you, the soloist.
