Stanford Cello Concerto, Piano Concerto No.3


Stanford Cello Concerto, Piano Concerto No.3


"The Cello Concerto is in the same league as the later Dvorák concerto with a first movement ripe with surging energy and some really dramatic writing for the brass. The Molto Adagio glows with gracious lyricism and while the manner might be familiar from Dvorák and even Brahms the listening experience is fresh and full of intriguing detail.
