About

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 Pärt 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.

This box consists of 4 previously released discs:

8572902 was called Evening Songs with music by Delius and Ireland was Classic FM CD of the Week. Gramophone wrote: “Julian Lloyd Webber brings an especially sensitive ‘voice’ to the Barjansky-Stradivarius cello…in the subtle changes of register and tone he lends to his own arrangements (all bar three), with the legerdemain of John Lenehan’s delicate accompaniments.”

On 8573250 he conducted string music with the English Chamber Orchestra – it was a Gramophone Choice recording and a Classic FM CD of the Week. BBC Music Magazine wrote: “Julian Lloyd Webber…evidently has the ability to make a difference to collective performance-level (the English Chamber Orchestra plays character fully and vividly at every point) while not getting in the music’s way – a combination of qualities nicely suited to this line-up of string works.”

8573251 features his own two-cello arrangements with his wife, Jiaxin Lloyd Webber, about which Gramophone wrote that it was “beautifully played and blended together in slow lyrical tunes, with a stylish piano accompaniment…”

8573374 is a Vivaldi album, again with his wife. It was Classic FM CD of the Year.
