How do you break a world record? With two of them! This concert joins the most famous cello concerto with the most popular symphony of the nineteenth century – the latter will be performed by cello legend Mischa Maisky. Both later works were written by Czech composer Antonín Dvořák in America – and so are filled with both American and Bohemian melodies along with a good dose of melancholy: Dvořák's Cello Concerto contains an instrumental requiem for his deceased sister-in-law.
