About

Evangeline Benedetti gives a master class on Saint–Saëns’ Cello Concerto No. 1, Op. 33 to the young and talented Danielle Akta.

Saint-Saëns composed his Cello Concerto No. 1 in A minor, Op. 33 in 1872, at the age of 37. He wrote it for the Belgian cellist Auguste Tolbecque, who performed as soloist in the work's premiere at the Paris conservatoire concert in 1873. Sir Donald Francis Tovey later wrote: "Here, for once, is a violoncello concerto in which the solo instrument displays every register without the slightest difficulty in penetrating the orchestra". Composers like Shostakovich and Rachmaninov considered this concerto to be one of the greatest concertos in the instrument's repertoire.
