The Romantic Cello
Rossen Milanov, Conductor
Pablo Ferrández, cello
Torres - Tres Pinturas Velazqueñas
Elgar - Cello Concerto
Brahms - Symphony No. 3
The intimate voice of the cello finds one of its most glorious and moving embodiments in Elgar’s Cello Concerto. The sparkling orchestration of Torres’ Tres Pinturas Velazqueñasis an aural reflection of three of the most famous paintings by Diego Velázquez. Brahms’ music is timeless and universal, and hearing this rarely performed masterwork will transport you to a world of passion and beauty.
