Britten: Music for Cello
Britten: Symphony for Cello & Orchestra, Op 68: I, Allegro maestoso (12:45)
Zuill Bailey, cello; North Carolina Symphony / Grant Llewellyn
Zuill Bailey adds a pair of major works for cello by Benjamin Britten to his impressive array of critically acclaimed albums. The Symphony for Cello and Orchestra and Sonata in C major were both written in the early 1960s for Mstislav Rostropovich, one of Britten’s most important musical collaborators. The recording of the Symphony was made in concert with the North Carolina Symphony.
