5.0 out of 5 stars Sparkling Sullivan 3 Aug 2006
Format:Audio CD
Sullivan's Cello Concerto is a fascinating discovery which receives a sparkling performance from Lloyd Webber and Mackerras.The soloist tears through the demanding finale with panache and his lyrical playing in Elgar's Romance is a special pleasure. Groves' Irish Symphony has long been a favourite account. An excellent issue all round

5.0 out of 5 stars Best ever recording of the Sullivan! 6 May 2014
Format:Audio CD
I have really grown to love the Sullivan cello concerto, every time I finish playing it I can't stop humming the opening bars!
This 1986 recording with the London Symphony Orchestra and Julian Lloyd Webber as soloist is the best recording of the Sullivan I have ever come across. The three movements, which are played without a break, climb from a brief formal opening, to soar like an operatic aria in the second movement before culminating in a very powerful and melodic finale.
For an even more authentic and pure sound I recommend listening to the cello concerto on LP, as the quality is similar to the one of an SACD.

3.0 out of 5 stars Passable recording of a long-lost Sullivan gem. 30 July 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Until 1986, the Sullivan Cello Concerto amounted to no more than a footnote in any standard history of the Savoy operas. Originally performed in 1866, the score was destroyed in 1964, but the Cello part did survive and the conductor, Sir Charles Mackerras, considered that he could reconstruct it based on his memories of a performance from 1953. So, is there any merit to this work? The answer is yes, provided that you're not a musical snob. It must be admitted that in his purely orchestral works, Sullivan did not have a very good grasp of structure, and that is clear in this particular score, as well as in his only symphony, also included here. That said, this Concerto is bright and breezy, and typically of Sullivan is full of good tunes. The only downside is that Julian Lloyd Webber is simply not good enough for the solo part, especially the fiendish final movement. Readers will probably be aware that the Concerto has just been performed at the Proms by Paul Watkins, and this finally did justice to Sullivan's work. It apparently has been re-recorded, and I would say that the latter would be a much better bet. The remainder of the disc is well-worth hearing, especially the 'Irish' Symphony, impeccably conducted by Sir Charles Groves, and the 'Di Ballo' overture. The other neglected gem here is the Elgar 'Romance'. In this much gentler piece, though, LLoyd Webber is more than adequate.
