Sir Edward Elgar's magnificent Concerto for Violoncello and Orchestra was a very personal one for the composer and a tremendous success when it first appeared on the scene. Since that moment it has remained a staple of the repertoire. It was a specialty of the late Jacqueline du Pré and was accordingly featured in the 1998 film Hillary and Jackie. Now it’s yours to enjoy in a magnificent new MMO digital recording. Famed European ’cellist Anatoli Krastev gives a virtuoso performance in this masterwork - then steps aside so you can fill his shoes alongside Maestro Todorov and the Plovdiv Philharmonic. Enjoy! This deluxe 2CD set includes a slow-tempo practice version to help you get up to speed.
Adagio (Rehersal Number 34)
