Notes and Editorial Reviews

Born in Dublin, the cellist and composer Victor Herbert was just seven years of age when he left Ireland, spending the next twenty years of his life in Germany and finally emigrating to the USA where, in 1889, he was appointed to the teaching staff of the National Conservatory of Music in New York City. It was there that he first encountered the famous Czech composer, Antonin Dvorak, who was appointed Director of the National Conservatory in 1892. On March 9, 1894, Herbert's powerful Cello Concerto No. 2 was premiered in New York, with Herbert himself taking the solo part. Dvorak's own magnificent Cello Concerto, arguably the finest and most popular in the repertory, owes much to Herbert's work, so this new release offers a rare and Read more valuable opportunity to hear these two great works side-by-side, together with another work for cello and orchestra dating from Dvorak's years in New York, Klid ("Silent Woods"), in ravishing performances from James Kreger with the Philharmonia Orchestra under the inspired Korean conductor, Djong Victorin Yu.
