Mischa Maisky is one of the world’s leading cellists. He supplies evidence in his fantastic performance of Dvorák’s famous Cello Concerto, which is included in the fourth part of the Dvorák Cycle. After 1975, Maisky established an international reputation, touring the USA, Europe, Australia and the Far East. In 1977 he played for the first time in London with pianist Radu Lupu. Subsequent years of work in the recording studio and on the concert podium made Maisky one of the most important cellists of his generation.
Ever since its first performance in 1893 in New York’s Carnegie Hall, the Ninth Symphony has taken its place among the greatest works of European romanticism. The public response to the work was so overwhelming that the Czech composer became the most popular man in New York overnight. One can only agree with Václav Neumann: “Yes, this is the most magnificent symphony in the repertoire of Czech music.”
