Concerto for violoncello and orchestra in A minor, op. 129
Ludwig van Beethoven
Symphony No. 1 C Major, op. 21
Andrew Manze, Conductor
Daniel Müller-Schott, Cello
Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks
British-born Andrew Manze began his impressive career as a violinist and conductor of early music. Since then the vitality and spontaneity he acquired in the early music scene now covers every era of music history. With Schumann’s Cello Concerto of 1850 he ventures into the innermost precincts of romanticism. Endless dreamlike melodic lines and a fervent urge to communicate characterise the solo part, making this concerto, to Munich cellist Daniel Müller-Schott, one of the most personal of all works for cello and orchestra. Manze’s unconventional and daredevil approach is as welcome here as it is in Beethoven’s First Symphony, where the composer’s idiosyncratic and trailblazing will to expression already flares up behind a seemingly classicist façade.
