Tasmania Symphony Orchestra - Dvořák’s Cello Concerto
Few pieces of music are as moving as Dvořák’s Cello Concerto. Composed for the great Czech cellist Hanuš Wihan in the mid-1890s, it combines technical virtuosity with heartfelt emotion. In the course of writing the work, Dvořák received word of the death of a much loved friend, and the concerto takes on a beautifully serene tone as it makes its way towards its elegiac conclusion. Schoenberg’s Chamber Symphony No 2 is a landmark work of musical modernism while Prokofiev’s Classical Symphony brims with vitality and good humour.
