Thanks, John! That was very informative and a fun listen. I especially like the comparative listenings--really highlights the diverse interpretations of pieces and different styles of playing.
I managed to pick up one of your recommended CDs of Dvorak's Cello Concerto and it turned out to be a fine choice. Really is a beautiful piece.
According to the BBC program, Dvorak's initial notes called for a faster tempo, but I find myself still preferring the somewhat slower pace.
