On this week's Patreon-sponsored episode, we're looking at Dvorak's beloved cello concerto. We're remarkably lucky to even have this piece, as Dvorak was initially opposed to the idea of writing a cello concerto at all! But once he finished it, none other than Brahms claimed that if he had known that a cello concerto could be written like this, he would have written one himself. We'll talk about the sometimes tragic history behind the concerto, and of course, the music itself. Thanks for listening!
