Post Subject: What a great cello concerts in Boston!Posted by Romy the Cat on: 11/16/2008

The last night Alban Gerhardt played Dvorak’s Cello Concerto with BSO under Marek Janowski.

I did not go to the concert but was listening the concert lives over WCRB. Alban Gerhardt has reportedly a very good cello but I did not particularly like how he played too little nuance and shadows but instead the obnoxious and bold presentation.

Today, Marek Janowski leads Pittsburgh Symphony with Haydn’ s Cello Concerto No 2 on, WBHR live- to-tape. The Bostonian Alisa Weilerstein plays cello part and I generally like her. It starts in two hours and it might be very interesting, even though I do not like Pittsburgh’s Heinz Hall.

Next week Gennady Rozhdestvensky lead Boston Symphony with Lynn Harrell plays Elgar’s Cello Concerto. This might be very good as Lynn Harrell might be offensively good. The next week Elgar will be broadcasted LIVE on Friday by WBHR and on Saturday by WCRB. I am not planning to go but it the Friday’s play will turn good then I might go on the last concert on Thursday.

Is anything else a cello lover might wish for?
