  • Daniel Müller-Schott, cello
  • Dmitrij Kitajenko, conductor


«Why didn’t I know that one can write a cello concerto like this?», Johannes Brahms is said to have sighed on hearing Antonín Dvořák’s Concerto in B minor. To this day, with the spirituality of its Allegro, the lovelorn yearning of its Adagio and the melancholy final movement, it remains the most passionate cello concerto of them all. Daniel Müller-Schott returns to the Tonkunstler Orchestra with this masterpiece; next, the musicians under the baton of guest conductor Dmitri Kitayenko, esteemed by performers and audiences alike, bring another dream-world to life and present excerpts from Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s «Nutcracker» Suite.
