Dvorák: Concerto for Cello and Orchestra in B minor Op 104
English Symphony Orchestra
Maja Bogdanovic, cello
Kenneth Woods, conductor
Based between Paris and Chicago, Serbian cellist, Maja Bogdanovic is fast becoming one of today’s most popular international virtuosi, with playing, “…gloriously honeyed, fiery, eloquent and fervent”, according to The Strad. In demand as soloist, chamber musician and recitalist, Bogdanovic made her concerto recording debut in 2014 in the Cello Concerto by the English Symphony Orchestra’s Composer Laureate, Philip Sawyers, conducted by Kenneth Woods.
Bogdanovic’s most recent ESO appearance saw her give the world premiere of Sawyers’ Double Concerto for Violin and Cello with her husband, violinist Daniel Rowland. The Nimbus Alliance recording of the work is being released on 6 March.
