Carter Brey Plays Bach & Dvorak

Tune in tonight at 7 as Carter Brey - one of America's great cellists - scales the twin peaks of the cello repertory, the Dvorak Cello Concerto and the Bach Cello Suites. He performs the Dvorak with the New York Philharmonic, which he joined as principal cello in 1996 after a very successful solo career. Then, with a Baroque bow and gut strings, he plays the first two of Bach's solo cello suites. His Bach, said the New York Times, was "t beautifully shaped [and] alert" and received a "long and loud standing ovation." Also on the broadcast: Alan Gilbert conducts the Tchaikovsky Fifth Symphony.
