Gál’s compositional output was vast, varied and consistent, from his early success in 1920s Germany, through internment during World War II, to his days in Edinburgh where he settled, became a respected academic and lived out his long life. His vivacious Cello Concertino was written in 1965, when he was 75 years old. The two spirited solo cello works were among his last, written at the age of 92.
“hats off to conductor Kenneth Woods [for] making a case for Gál’s elegantly built orchestral pieces ... Here’s hoping this is the beginning of a substantial Gal revival.” – National Public Radio’s ‘All Things Considered’
“An extraordinary cellist – charismatic, virtuosic, brimming with verve and poetry” – The Times on Matthew Sharp
