Dvorák Cello Concerto
Dvorák Symphony No. 9 From the New World
International cellist Suren Bagratuni demonstrates his finest technical abilities in Dvorák's last solo concerto, a dramatic work from its somber opening to the unprecedented closing section of the finale. Composed while in the U.S., Dvorák's Ninth Symphony, From the New World, with its pulsating rhythms and vivid colors, remains to this day the most belived of all symphonies created in our country.
