Notes and Editorial Reviews

Julian Lloyd Webber, one of the world’s most admired cellists, notably expanded his instrument’s repertoire in the concert hall and on disc. In this retrospective of his art he can be heard as soloist, arranger and conductor. He evokes the lyricism of the songs of Frederick Delius and John Ireland with rich expressivity, adapts a selection of music from Monteverdi to Arvo Part for the combination of two cellos, and crafts new and exciting Vivaldi arrangements. His conducting prowess is shown by supremely sensitive performances of English string music.

 

Review excerpts from select, previously released volumes included in this set:


And the Bridge Is Love

Lloyd Webber, here as (primarily) conductor, offers an impressive disc of English music that demonstrates a richly rewarding affinity for the repertoire.

– Gramophone

Vivaldi: Concertos for Two Cellos

This is undoubtedly a successful disc which will appeal to many listeners. The playing, throughout, is very accomplished and sensitive and very well captured by the engineers.
