Last night, I heard Lalo’s Cello Concerto in D minor. As it was one of the concerto competition winners @ Marrowstone, I had heard it before, but the two interpretations are rather different, I think. The one I heard last night seemed more like a contemplation of death; the Marrowstone interpretation seemed to be embracing spring more. The former also took it at a slower tempo–perhaps that brought out the melancholy.
