Walton & Shostakovich: Cello Concertos

£12.00

The outstanding British cellist Jamie Walton returns to disc on Signum, accompanied by the Philharmonia Orchestra under Alexander Briger. This disc includes William Walton’s 1975 revision to the final movement of the cello concerto, which has never before been recorded or publically performed (as well as a performance of the original final movement).
 
This disc completes an Anglo-Russian trilogy of recordings by Jamie with this orchestra and conductor, proceed by pairings of Elgar & Myaskovsky and Britten & Shostakovich. Both discs were released to great critical acclaim:
 
Elgar & Myaskovsky (SIGCD116):
"This is probably the best performance of the Elgar Cello Concerto that I have heard. Walton cannot be beaten. I shall treasure this recording – literally: I shall hoard it against a musically rainy day."
Paul Adrian Rooke, The Elgar Society Journal
