Initially, Lalo was destined for the career of an officer, but being revealed early by his musical gifts, he finally began a career as a musician. His concerto in D minor, barely less fiery than his "Spanish Symphony," is well known to all cellists. Many virtuosos, from Julius Klengel to Leonard Rose, have published their own editions of the concerto. This edition of Urtext leaves aside all the additions of these different editors but offers in addition to the part without fingerings a technical arrangement made by the famous virtuoso cellist Heinrich Schiff. In addition to the piano reduction, score, score and orchestral material are published by Breitkopf - Härtel.
