Dvorak: Cello Concertos
Dvořák: Cello Concerto in A major (revised & orchestrated by Günter Raphael) (33:53)
Steven Isserlis, cello; Mahler Chamber Orchestra / Daniel Harding
Hyperion presents the world’s best-loved cello concerto performed by one of the world’s best-loved cellists, Steven Isserlis, who has waited 40 years to record this pinnacle of the repertoire. He has also recorded a version of Dvořák’s first cello concerto, a little-known work from the composer’s early period which he never orchestrated. This version is by German composer Günter Raphael, whose works were performed by Furtwängler among others, and is extensively rewritten from the composer’s original.
