One of the most popular cello works ever written, Shostakovich’s First Cello Concerto is a profound expression of struggle and triumph, its sardonic humor giving way to elegiac beauty. Its dramatic character is more than matched by Berlioz's Symphonie fantastique, from its sumptuous ball-scene with a haunting waltz melody to the evil howls and cackles of its witches' Sabbath.
