Queyras plays Dvo?ák
French cellist Jean-Guihen Queyras in the most beautiful solo concerto for his instrument: that of Dvo?ák. 'It is absolutely genius,' Queyras tells us in a video on social media. 'With the most beautiful melodies, and also an autobiographical background.' In his Cello Concerto, Dvo?ák repeatedly lets an earlier song of his sound. He once wrote it for a great love, and even when he married her sister the connection remained. The Cello Concerto is Dvo?ák's tribute to his sister-in-law, and his mourning of her death. Queyras, according to The Telegraph, finds just the "right balance of discipline and freedom" in Dvo?ák. The result is sophisticated and moving.

Canellakis leads Rachmaninoff
Karina Canellakis 'unleashes a crackling energy on the stage', wrote Trouw. The new chief of the Radio Philharmonic Orchestra conducts Rachmaninoff as well as Dvo?ák. His Symphonic Dances indeed crackle, but they also tinkle. Rachmaninoff incorporated all kinds of bells and other percussion into his bittersweet last piece of music.
