Dvořák: Cello Concerto
Beethoven: Symphony No. 6

When Alban Gerhardt was a boy growing up in Berlin, he was one quick young man. He even won the all-Germany 1000-meter championship one year. Stamina, speed, dedication — all these held him in good stead when he picked up the cello and discovered he was good — very good — at it. He uses all three, plus an unerring sense of beauty, in this special Symphony Hall concert from Boston.
