Product Description

Review

''It's a timely (and pleasant) addition to the catalogue on the eve of Delius' 150th anniversary and John Ireland's 50th.'' ----BBC Music Magazine, Feb 2012

''Using a portmento like a singing voice, Lloyd Webber's cello playing is silky smooth and the intonation immaculate, a pleasure doubled by Jiaxin Cheng's contribution in two Ireland pieces arranged for cello duo and piano. This is not a disc of high contrasts, but one of great beauty with a recorded sound to match.'' --THE STRAD RECOMMENDS --The Strad, Feb'12

''Hearing the songs of both composers without the texts, and played with such attention to colour and gradation, reminds us just how masterly and diverse both composers were in their art of the solo song, and indeed how far each composer developed his own individual concept of the genre. As the title of the disc suggests, this is an ideal collection to while away the summer evenings.'' --Gramophone, Mar'12

''Delius and Ireland both have anniversaries is 2012. The Cellist Julian Lloyd Webber is a devotee of both and has in the past recorded both the Delius Cello Concerto and Cello Sonata and also the Ireland chamber repertoire. Now he has had the bright thought of not just setting them alongside each other but of doing so via their songs. Lloyd Webber has borrowed 21 of the for his own instrument, and arranged them accordingly himself, except for three where a cello arrangement was pre-existing. The recording is unobtrusively excellent.'' --IRR, Feb'12

''Lloyd Webber...celebrates Delius's 150th, and the 50th anniversary of the death of another of his passions, John Ireland, with Evening Songs,21 highly recommended arrangements for cello and piano on a Naxos disc. Delius wrote 61 songs, few of them memorable, but Julian makes much of the best of them, with his attentive partner, the pianist John Lenehan. The Ireland items make more of an impact, especially his carol The Holy Boy, and Sea fever, based on John Masefield's poem.'' --Mail on Sunday, 04/02/12

''With great sensitivity and insight, Webber has revived a once-popular tradition of arranging vocal music for instruments and given voice to the cello to capture the remarkable melodic charm and poignancy of both composers songs. He is joined by his cellist wife, Jiaxin Cheng and the acclaimed piano accompanist, John Lenehan, who is an acknowleged interpreter of Ireland. This CD is an absolute joy.'' ----Delius society Bulletin

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect Valantine's Day present! 8 Feb 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Beautiful compilation of songs without words by Delius and Ireland, arranged for cello and piano by Julian Lloyd-Webber.

Very romantic, warm, soothing tunes, perfect for a Valantine's evening! Lovely music that appeals to everyone, not just classical music enthusiasts.

I particularly enjoyed the "Sunset" track by Delius and the John Ireland's songs arranged for two cellos.

The Birds in the High Hall Garden track is sublime...

If you have listened to some Delius before and thought his music wasn't very melodic but rather made of rich and colourful harmonies, this CD proves that Delius' music can be melodic too, and what beautiful melodies he has given us!

Enjoy!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Sublime 31 Jan 2012
Format:Audio CD
A gem of a recording. The Lloyd Webber/Lenehan combo is at its best. Lloyd Webber makes the cello sing in these beautifully arranged songs and Lenehan's sensitivity to the music is breathtaking. Listen out for the very talented cellist Jiaxin Cheng. My choice for a passionate and sensuous Valentine's Day evening.

5.0 out of 5 stars evening chill 31 Jan 2012
By Mazza
Format:Audio CD
Big fan of John Ireland, this is a great collection of songs by two of Britain's finest composers. As with Lloyd Webber's Unexpected Songs album the music is beautifully recorded and the performances are the best. All this for a great price.

4.0 out of 5 stars Rare Delius 11 May 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This album provides an opportunity to hear four very rare Delius pieces, "Birds in the High Hall Garden", "Over the Mountains
High", "Slumber Song" and "Mit deinen blauen Augen". These were all missing from my comprehensive Delius collection.
Admittedly I still lack the version with words intended by Delius but to hear these pieces at all is a new joy.
The works on this album all work very well on the cello and are played beautifully by Lloyd Webber and his friends.
Recording quality is excellent and this album is terrific value for money. Strongly recommended.Grieg/Delius/Compl' Music Cello & Piano

5.0 out of 5 stars Box of chocolates 5 Feb 2014
By Pemb56
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
If you are thinking of buying this - don't hesitate. The disc is a real "box of chocolates” collection to sit back and enjoy- each one a little gem played exquisitely with charm and subtlety by Lloyd Webber and Leneham. You will not fail to be delighted by these miniatures. I would pick a favourite if I could but each one is distinct and charming in its own way,
