Steven Isserlis, Philharmonia Orchestra & Paavo Järvi - Elgar & Walton: Cello Concertos (2016) HDtracks

Sir Edward Elgar's sublime Cello Concerto receives an impassioned new performance from Steven Isserlis, the Philharmonia Orchestra and Paavo Järvi. With additional works by Sir William Walton and Gustav Holst, as well as a miniature suite for solo cello by Imogen Holst, this is unquestionably one of the year's most eagerly awaited releases.

This is a long-loved,lived-in interpretation of the Elgar Concerto. Performance ****(*) Recording ***** BBC MUSIC CONCERTO CHOICE --BBC Music Magazine, Mar'16

With his immaculate technical address and ravishingly songful, mellow tone, Isserlis strikes the right balance between classical strength and private introspection, his contribution as full of radiant spontaneity and tumbling fantasy as one could wish. An unmissable release. GRAMOPHONE RECORDING OF THE MONTH --Gramophone, Mar'16

Steven Isserlis made a fine, fierce recording of the Elgar Cello Concerto with the LSO 18 years ago; this new version, with the Philharmonia and conductor Paavo Järvi, is fiercer still older, wiser and even more convincing. Isserlis's cello rages against the dying of the light, sounding angry yet still beautiful, and under Järvi the orchestra is full-bodied but focused. The slow movement is impatient and impassioned, and when this music returns towards the very end it leaves a terrible unanswered question hanging. Holst's little-known Invocation the composer in romantic yet beatific mode lightens things before an eloquent, mercurial performance of the Walton Concerto from Isserlis, with the orchestra offering colourful support. Finally, there is Imogen Holst's solo cello variations on the three-centuries-old melody The Fall of the Leafe. It's good to hear this sparse, distinctive piece, even if the close recording makes it seem Isserlis is breathing in your ear. --Guardian,4/3/16
