A cadenza is a part where the soloist plays… solo. Every classical concert has one. Some composers let the soloist to improvise or compose their own. But some others, write great cadenzas that challenge what can be done with the instrument. All that happens in Ligeti’s violin concerto candenza is written. For cello, the greatest cadenza ever, was the one Shostakovich wrote for Rostropovich. I saw 3 years ago in Konzerthaus Berlin, in front of almost thousand people, the player forgot the notes in the middle this cadenza, that was hell on earth for that soloist. Here Han-Na Chang in one of the most vivid interpretations ever. What a fucking sound had this child!!! Pure rock&roll
