Cemal Resit Rey composed this cello concerto (Pieces Concertantes) in 1959 for great French cellist Pierre Fournier who premiered it in Istanbul under the baton of the composer. Since than the work was totally neglected by cellists until 2005 when Sölen Dikener found its score in Istanbul Philharmonic Society. Mr. Panayot Abaci kindly permitted Dikener to perform the work for the second time. Mr. Isin Metin, resident conductor of Bilkent Symphony Orchestra in Ankara has prepared the orchestral parts and scheduled the work for its second performance in 2007.
