I have an old cassette, recorded from a radio broadcast on National Public Radio between 10 and 30 years ago. (I wish I had made a note of the date.) Mr. Harrell plays Tchaikovsky's Pezzo Capriccioso with the L.A. Philharmonic, Michael Tilson Thomas conducting. The sound quality is still good, and it is a treasure.

MTT was Principal Guest Conductor of the LA Phil from 1981-85. The broadcast you have could very likely be from around that time.

Thanks, Steven! 1981-1985 is very probable.

If you wrote the LA Phil I am sure they would have a record of which years Mr. Harrell played there. The librarian/archivist often keeps those records. Wonderful that you captured the performance. Do you notice any difference in his approach and style of playing, between then and now? If it is indeed from the early 80's that is quite a span of time and so often artists' conception of a piece may change and mature over the decades.

Steven,
About all I can say is that, up through 1990, Mr. Harrell did a fair amount of performing with full orchestras. But after 1990, he seems to have focused more on chamber music and solo pieces. I'm very unsophisticated and haven't even attended a music appreciation class. I just collect recordings and enjoy them. A search of Amazon.com for recordings by Mr. Harrell yields over 90 results! I knew he's good, but now I guess he's a great cello artist! I plan to order the Schubert piano trios with Mr. Harrell performing, but I doubt that I'll be able to spot any change in his style.

"Also in its holdings are Los Angeles Philharmonic concert program booklets, whose listings, articles, and advertisements provide a chronicle of social and artistic attitudes, musical events, and professional conditions in Los Angeles over the last seventy-five years."

There is phone and email contact information in that link, you might be able to get in touch, as Steven suggests.
