About

An outstanding collection of cello favourites, all chosen by Julian Lloyd Webber himself for his 70th birthday. The set features celebrated recordings spanning two decades; all were made with his Barjansky Stradivarius cello which he played for more than thirty years. Widely regarded as one of the most creative musicians of his generation, Julian inspired many new compositions and arrangements for cello – many featured in this new set.

A centrepiece of this new collection is his award-winning recording of Elgar’s Cello Concerto.

Other highlights include his recordings of Shostakovich’s Cello Sonata with John McCabe, the Saint-Saëns Concerto and works by Fauré and Debussy with Yan Pascal Tortelier, arrangements of Vaughan Williams, John Ireland and Percy Grainger with Sir Neville Marriner, Tchaikovsky’s Rococo Variations with Maxim Shostakovich (Tchaikovsky’s original version) and a special recording of Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Pie Jesu.

Plus a beautiful miniature entitled Jackie’s Song, composed by Julian as a musical tribute to the cellist Jacqueline Du Pré. “I felt compelled to write something which hopefully encapsulates the special qualities of this unique musician.”
