Peter Eötvös conducts the premiere of his Cello Concerto Grosso
For Peter Eötvös, composing is “the enchantment of the listener through sound”. The composer presented one result of this concept with the premiere of his Cello Concerto Grosso in 2011. In addition, there is tempestuous music and psychological drama in the second half of the concert, when Eötvös conducts the Coronation and Death Scenes from Mussorgsky’s Boris Godunov. The soloists are the cellist Miklós Perényi and the bass-baritone Ferruccio Furlanetto.
