No Cello Concerto is so much fun!

The moment the first movement of the Friedrich Gulda Cello Concerto starts, with a rock concert feel, it knocks your socks off. This concerto is a complete mix of styles, including gorgeous romantic melodies, Laendler (Schubert or Mahler style) and authentic beer festival oompah-pah music. The minuet is a delightful example of neo-classical at its best. This might not be music for musical snobs but I challenge anyone not to enjoy it. The different styles actually work together and the orchestration is spot on, using the wind band to brilliant effect. I have heard three excellent versions of this concerto, starting with the original LP with Heinrich Schiff on cello and Friedrich Gulda, the composer, conducting. Then there is the young Gautier Capucon who plays it on CD and DVD. They are all good but this new version by Nicolas Altstaedt is my favourite. Do give it a try.
