The greatest cello concerto? Many cellists would argue it’s this piece by Dvořák – a late-career gem that surprised even himself.
A piece that demands both a bold and tender sound, Dvořák’s sublime and lush melodies are brilliantly realised through the fearless and dashing playing of one of the world’s greatest cellists, Daniel Müller-Schott.
Prokofiev’s Romeo and Juliet is similarly alive and beautiful. Incredibly expressive, this ballet score is one of the world’s most popular and enduring. Listen for the excitable Juliet, the audacious Romeo, the Montagues and the Capulets, the hot-tempered Tybalt, and beneath it all, the subtle hint of tragedy that awaits star-crossed lovers.
