Castelnuovo-Tedesco Cello Concerto

Houston Symphony Principal cellist Brinton Averil Smith will this week give only the 2nd performance in history of Italian composer Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco’s Cello Concerto – more than 80 years after its original debut.

The work was premiered in 1935 by cello virtuoso Gregor Piatigorsky, with conductor Arturo Toscanini and the New York Philharmonic – before falling into immediate obscurity.
