About the Repertoire

ELGAR Cello Concerto: In the spring of 1918, following a long and painful illness finally diagnosed as tonsillitis, Edward Elgar underwent surgery. The composer's daughter, Carice, recalled: "He was in a great deal of pain for several days; (there) were not anything like the sedatives that we have now, but nevertheless he woke up one morning and asked for pencil and paper".

BRAHMS Symphony No. 4: Johannes Brahms composed his Fourth (and final) Symphony during the summers of 1884 and 1885, while vacationing in the Alpine village of Mu?rzzuschlag.
