LPO/Eschenbach in Brahms and Dvorak

Christoph Echenbach conducts the London Philharmonic. Brahms: Symphony No 1. Dvorak: Cello Concerto, with Daniel Mueller-Schott (cello). Plus a focus on the London Mozart Players.

Catherine Bott presents a concert given at London's Royal Festival Hall by the London Philharmonic under conductor Christoph Eschenbach.

The programme features music written by two composer friends - Brahms, who agonised over every note he wrote and took 21 years to complete his First Symphony, and Dvorak, whom Brahms envied for his ability to produce infectious melodies with apparent ease. Young soloist Daniel Mueller-Schott performs Dvorak's Cello Concerto with an interpretation that has received positive reviews on both sides of the Atlantic.
