Cellist Mstislav Rostropovich’s superlative talent has inspired many composers to write work to exploit the amazing technique and expressivity of one of the 20th-century’s most remarkable musicians. Shostakovitch’s Cello Concerto No. 1 is one such example, supreme amongst concert pieces for cello since its premiere in 1959. In these concerts, Marco Pereira, the Gulbenkian Orchestra’s soloist, will take this challenging place under the rigorous Finnish conductor Hannu Lintu. The programme will be completed by Shostakovitch’s acclaimed Symphony No. 11.
