Info for Lalo, Casals: Cello Concertos
The renowned cellist and artistic director of the Moritzburg Festival Jan Vogler has recorded two beautiful romantic cello concertos together with 45 outstanding young musicians of the Moritzburg Festival Orchestra under the direction of its chief conductor Josep Caballé Domenech. And one of them is even a world premiere recording: the Cello Concerto in F major by Enrique Casals (1892-1986), brother of the famous Pablo Casals, who was himself an outstanding violinist and conductor as well as a gifted composer. It is an extremely colourful cello concerto, has a typically Catalan character and yet is clearly inspired by German late Romanticism.
The second concerto is the famous Cello Concerto by the French composer Édouard Lalo (1823-1892), who celebrates his 200th birthday in 2023. His masterpiece combines Spanish folklore with influences from Beethoven and Schumann - an excellent work with a demanding symphonic section in which orchestra and soloist engage in a lively dialogue.
