The Concerto for Violincello and Orchestra, Op. 49, composed in 1948 is the second in a cycle of three concertos dedicated to Soviet Youth. The traditional movement form is consistently followed within each concerto as well as serving as an overall structure for the cycle. Thus the first concerto for violin is the equivalent of the opening fast movement. The one for violincello is essentially lyrical throughout corresponding with the usual slow movement, while the third concerto for piano provides the brilliant finale to the cycle. Although not based directly on folk tunes, the Concerto for Violincello has a flavor of Russian and Near Eastern folk music found in many of Kabalevsky's compositions.

  • December 18, 2008 A different concerto

    This piece is the first concerto I played, and I think it does a very good job of getting cellists used to concerto techniques and playing, and it has excellent Russian music.
