Credit for the first true concerto for cello goes to Robert Schumann. The work has become immensely popular, thanks primarily to its originality and range of emotions – from a quiet intimacy to carefree joviality. But also as a result of the support of a succession of top soloists who have placed this concerto on their repertoire and taken it around the world.
