Notes & Reviews:

Schumann's Cello Concerto, the first large-scale Romantic concerto composed for the cello, was written in 1854, late in the composer's life. Exactly when the first performance took place is unknown, but the popularity of the work continues unabated to this day, and it is one of the most beautiful cello concertos ever. In the following year, Robert Volkmann composed his own Cello Concerto, sharing with Schumann's work not only a common key tonality, but also sharing with it a deep expressiveness and drama. Sadly, following the composer's death, much of his music disappeared from the world's concert halls, and is only now being re-discovered and championed by young artists.
