Notes and Editorial Reviews

Dvorák’s Cello Concerto is really the first such work of modern times. Laid out in three large movements it is full of the most wonderful tunes. Dvorák never skimped on giving us as much melody as he could. Add to that the glorious orchestration, fireworks for the soloist and the most poignant of codas. Natalia Gutman is a fine player and she has all the virtuosity required by this work, but she is equally at home in the lyrical parts. Using a subtle amount of rubato she gives a first class performance, and is very well supported by the Philadelphia under Sawallisch.
