Lalo’s Cello Concerto of 1877 is arguably a finer work than his evergreen Symphonie espagnole for violin and orchestra. A concise work of considerable power and depth, its comparative rarity in concert is difficult to fathom. Saint-Saëns’s Second Concerto is another rarity – a late work from 1902, it is overshadowed by his dazzling First Concerto of 1872. However, it has all the hallmarks of its composer – grace, virtuosity and considerable charm, all beautifully written for soloist and orchestra.
