The Fargo-Moorhead Symphony Music Director and the celebrated cellist on why this piece (with an upcoming performance) is great.

The Fargo-Moorhead Symphony is performing Brahms First Symphony (sometimes called Beethoven's Tenth) and Dvorak's Cello Concerto. This conversation is about the latter. Amit Peled is one of today's foremost performers, who has done this piece many times. FM Symphony Music Director Christopher Zimmerman has also done it before. In this discussion you can hear that both love the work. You can also hear what is special about the cello.
