Edouard Lalo: Cello Concerto in d minor

Although Edouard Lalo was a Frenchman, he was of Spanish of decent: he’s most famous for his Symphonie Espagnole for violin and orchestra, and Spanish idioms also fill the three movements of his Cello Concerto; sometimes subtly, other times more blatantly. In particular, Lalo’s Cello Concerto is an accomplishment simply based on the composer’s ability to keep the soloist in the foreground as protagonist – that, plus it is one of the few model concertos for the cello from that time.
