Information about Saint-Saens C : Concerto In A Minor for Cello
The Julian Lloyd Webber performing edition series continues with Saint-Saëns Concerto No 1 in A minor. Also included is the Allegro Appassionato Op. 43 and The Swan
Born in London in 1951, Julian Lloyd Webber was a scholar at the Royal College of Music and completed his studies under Pierre Fournier in Geneva. Widely regarded as one of the most creative musicians of his generation, Julian has collaborated with an extraordinary array of musicians from Yehudi Menuhin, Lorin Maazel, Neville Marriner and Georg Solti to Stephane Grappelli, Elton John and Cleo Laine. Julian's twenty-year partnership with Philips/Universal Classics has produced many outstanding recordings including his Brit Award-winning Elgar Concerto conducted by Yehudi Menuhin (chosen as the finest-ever version by BBC Music Magazine), the Dvorák Concerto with Vaclav Neumann and the Czech Philharmonic, Tchaikovsky's Rocco Variations with the London Symphony under Maxim Shostakovich, and a coupling of Britten's Cello Symphony and Walton's Concerto with Sir Neville Marriner and the Academy of St Martin in the Fields, which was described by Gramophone magazine as 'beyond any rival'. Julian has also recorded several highly successful CDs of short pieces for Universal Classics, including Made in England, Cello Moods and Cradle Song: 'It would be difficult to find better performances of this kind of repertoire anywhere on records of today or yesterday.' Gramophone Julian has given more than fifty works their premier recordings and has inspired new compositions for cello from composers as diverse as Malcolm Arnold and Joaguin Rodrigo to James MacMillan and Philip Glass. Recent concert performances have included three further works composed for Julian - Michael Nyman's Double Concerto for cello and saxophone on BBC television, Gavin Bryars' Concerto in Suntory Hall, Tokyo, and Philip Glass' Concerto at the Beijing International Festival. Julian's recording of the Glass concerto with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic conducted by Gerard Schwarz was released on the Orange Mountain label in September 2004.
