Back to Paris tonight for a 1st French performance of the Concerto for 2 Cellos and Orchestra by Paul Tortelier. The Concerto was originally premiered in Germany in 1951, but since there is no date on the transcriptions I have, it’s assumed this is the first French performance, as it is recorded in concert and featuring Paul and Maud Tortelier with The French National Orchestra conducted by Andrè Cluytens.
As with all of the French Radio material, I am not sure this particular performance has been reissued. But even if it has, it’s a premier of a work by a composer long thought to be only a legendary Cellist.

No end to discoveries, it seems.
