ArtistsVictor Julien-Laferriere (cello)
Orchestre Philharmonique Royal de Liege
The two composers, born in Bohemia in 1841 and 1890 respectively, shared a strong attachment to the music of their homeland and a significant American experience – even if the reason for their travels was very different: Dvořák was director of the National Conservatory of New York from 1892 to 1895 (during which time he composed the ‘New World’ Symphony and this Cello Concerto) while Martinů emigrated to the United States during the Second World War and remained there until 1953, composing dozens of successful pieces.
With this recording, Victor Julien-Laferrière couples two key works for his instrument by eminent members of the Czech school.
“Julien-Laferrière has a Gallic tone in the best possible sense: focused and nimble, capable of intense sweetness” – Gramophone
