3rd Cello Concerto after the Cello Concerto Op.3 and the Cello Concerto from the Kammermusik series. Basically in G (even G major) with a second movement whose central interlude's central scherzo-like interlude, as it returns gradually to the main tempo, allows for an interesting section in which both the tempi and themes of the two sections overlap (something very like this was later done by Eduard Tubin in the central movement of his 7th symphony of 1958.) First original full score copyrighted in 1940 but published in 1943.
