The Cello Concerto in A minor by Robert Schumann was completed in 1850, shortly after Schumann became the music director of DÃ¼sseldorf. It is considered one of his more daring and adventurous works, due to the length of the exposition and the other-worldly quality of the opening.
Cello Concerto in E Minor, Op. 85 was English composer Edward Elgar's last notable work, and is a cornerstone of the solo cello repertoire.
AntonÃn DvoÅ™Ã¡k's Cello Concerto in B minor, Opus 104 is one of the most well-known cello concerti. It is performed very frequently, and many recordings exist. It was DvořÃ¡k's last solo concerto, and was written in 1894-1895 for his friend and cellist HanuÅ¡ Wihan.
