THE BRITISH CELLO PHENOMENON
CC1010

The exceptional tradition of British cello playing is celebrated on this exclusive 2-CD set, which gathers together many of the key cellists from the early years of the recording era to the present day. Here are such rarities as Sir John Barbirolli playing Bach; Beatrice Harrison, the Delius dedicatee, playing the Elegy; William Pleeth, one of the leading English cello teachers of his time, playing Rubbra with the composer at the piano; as well as performances from the current cello stars of the concert platform. Specially featured is the rediscovered recording of Jacqueline du Pré playing Rubbra?s Soliloquy, made during a performance with the Newbury String Players and conducted by her brother-in-law Christopher Finzi. With over two hours of music, this is a unique historical document.

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Dr. Richard M. Price on 29 Jan. 2012
Format: Audio CD
This is a simply marvellous issue, of excellent transfers of English cellists, some now legendary, playing a fascinating range of music, with something for all tastes. Yes, often we get a single movement of a multi-movement work, but this is always made clear; and yes, we get some arrangements of works written for other instruments, but what's the harm in that? The arrangements for cello of Debussy's Prelude à l'après-midi d'un faune and Grieg's To the Spring are both remarkably successful, and add to one's appreciation of the originals. The two Fauré items, played by Isserlis and Igloi, show the cello at its most irresistible, noble and elegaic. For me there is a particular fascination in hearing William Pleeth play a movement of the cello sonata Rubbra wrote for him, while the longest item in the collection is his pupil Jacqueline Du Pré playing the Rubbra Soliloquy for Cello and Strings, in exactly the manner in which I remember Pleeth himself playing it fifty years ago, that is, with stunning intensity and warmth of tone, a real revelation of the power of Rubbra's music when in the right hands; this item alone is worth the price of the whole collection.

If you are excited by the apparently generous and varied collection of music on this CD then you need to know that the track listing could be extremely misleading. Pieces may contain only one movement or part of the composition and may even be faded out before they have finished! Other tracks are not the usual version of the piece concerned. The track listing rarely makes this clear. The CD is intended as a (historical) record of famous cellists, not as a collection of music.
