    Default Reviving a cello concerto

    Confusion. Cellist Brinton Averil Smith says he recently revived Castelnuovo-Tedesco’s cello concerto, which has lain unperformed for 80 years, with the Houston Symphony.

    But Raphael Wallfisch points out that he has recently performed the work. It will be out on CPO on August 20. Hmmm.

    And this year a third recording of the concerto is out https://www.ricordi.com/en-US/News/2...ncerto-CD.aspx

    And Wallfisch's recording is from 2016 I think.

    This all springs from KUSC's article, which is evidently poorly researched.

    Of course. I listened to it last year I'm pretty sure. I love his guitar concertos, so I thought the cello concerto would be fun to listen to as well.

    I have contacted the Houston Symphony to ask about the Naxos recording and to see if this confusion can be resolved.

    This is a world premiere recording. Apparently Piatigorsky jealously guarded the score, and when he did finally drop it from his repertoire, cellists were reluctant to take it up. Thanks to Wallfisch's enthusiastic advocacy and championing of the work, we can now enjoy its delights.
