These two amiable concertos by the Latvian Davidov make a pleasant change from the usual cello concerto suspects and provide more evidence of interesting composers from the Baltic countries. The inclusion of the Tchaikovsky warhorse is not a disincentive as it's a well-played version, but the main interest is in the two concertos.
