Encyclopedia > Cello Concerto (Lalo)

Edouard Lalo's Cello Concerto in d minor is the only cello concerto written by Lalo. The piece was written in 1876, inspired by Camille Saint-Saens's Cello Concerto in a minor. The opening prelude, which precedes the first section, Allegro Maestoso, is a "call-to-arms", with a poignant style and flair. The first movement that follows the "call-to-arms" is a highly energetic, passionate movement. However, the second movement, Intermezzo, is a more dream-like reverie, though in Andantino (still part of the second movement) the piece returns to a faster-paced tempo. The third movement begins with a soliloquy of the cello and ends with a dazzling finale. Édouard Victoire Antoine Lalo (January 27, 1823 - April 22, 1892) was a French composer of Spanish descent. ...
