Programme Note
Avner Dorman Cello Concerto (2012),
In 3 movements, played without pause.

In a sentence, this is a concerto for a cello that forgot it was a cello. I’m not sure that there is a storyline in this piece, per se, but I feel like the cello is excited, at first to be free of its historical baggage. However, the exuberance that comes with this freedom is transformed into anxiety sometime during the first movement. The cello tries to recapture its old self, or whatever it can remember of it, in a passionate cadenza like second movement. However, this is not possible, but the cello does find its new place, expression, and soul, in the final movement of the piece.

— Avner Dorman

Reviews
To describe Inbal Segev's performance of Avner Dorman's Cello Concerto as "electrifying" would be exceedingly appropriate… here was a new musical experience… And what made it even more compelling was the marriage of her big sound with Dorman's dynamic music writing… Dorman's concerto is remarkable for its vibrancy
Marcus Kalipolites, Times Herald-Record,5/8/2013
The concerto was probably one of the most successful new works debuted by the Anchorage Symphony Orchestra during the tenure of conductor Randall Craig Fleischer, both in terms of substance and effect…
