Performed by Bruno Weinmeister and conducted by Susanna Mälkki, the cello concerto of contemporary music giant Friedrich Cerha gets the finest possible treatment. 

The forthcoming chief conductor of the Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra presents the three solid cores of classical music: an opera, a symphony and a concerto. The most successful contemporary composer in Austria dedicated his cello concerto to Heinrich Schiff, whose pupil Bruno Weinmester is following in his mentor’s footsteps as a champion of new music. The sounds of today are framed by two masterpieces of early romanticism.
