Experience the artistry of one of the most beloved cellists of all time in a breathtaking concert, performing Shostakovich's Cello Concerto No. 1. This remarkable concert led by Maestro Daniele Gatti marks the return of master cellist Yo-Yo Ma (after twenty years) to the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra. Recorded live in 2015 at the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam as they perform Shostakovich’s intense First Cello Concerto. Maestro Gatti juxtaposes the concerto with two popular works from the Russian dance tradition: Tchaikovsky’s "The Nutcracker Suite" made famous partly as a result of the Disney film Fantasia and Stravinsky’s “The Firebird Suite”, which, with his phenomenal orchestration, is evoking an exotic and often brooding atmosphere.
