Michael Samis Brings Lost Cello Concerto To Life

(Nashville) June, 2014 - Sometimes, great music is forgotten and overlooked. Like a precious gem or piece of gold buried in the dirt ­– with the passage of time people fail to remember. The forgotten Cello Concerto, composed by the gifted and prolific Carl Reinecke is one of those lost gems that deserve a dusting off and a return into the repertoire.

Samis, a Nashville-based cellist, launched a successful KickStarter campaign and brought this historic piece of music to life. With no recording currently available, the public response around the world to fund this project was tremendous. The recording was released June 10, on the Delos label with the Cello Concerto as the centerpiece of this debut solo album.

A performance on February 11, 2013, was likely the first time the piece has been heard on U.S. soil since the 1890’s. The Cello Concerto was recorded a few months later with the Gateway Chamber Orchestra, under the direction of conductor Gregory Wolynec at Austin Peay University’s George and Sharon Mabry Concert Hall, in Clarksville, TN.

“I discovered Reinecke's Cello Concerto, which was written in 1864. I had to learn this piece! Its soaring melodies and brilliant virtuosity remind me of Mendelssohn's violin concerto,” says Samis.

"The music is compelling and full of emotion, as it looks back to the work of composers like Schumann and Mendelssohn. This debut album is built around connections to the past, looking back to music and people for their inspiration.”
