Cellist Kian Soltani shares his interpretation of Antonín Dvořák’s towering Cello Concerto in our Album of the Week. He’s joined by conductor Daniel Barenboim and the Berlin Staatskapelle in a performance full of both subtlety and passion. Also on the recording are five arrangements of short works by Dvořák arranged by Soltani for himself plus a chamber ensemble of cellists from the Staatskapelle.
