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 Pre 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.

Includes an authoritative, newly engraved music score printed on high-quality ivory paper, and informative liner notes; a digital stereo compact disc featuring a complete performance of the concerto with orchestra and soloist, and a second performance minus you, the soloist; and a second compact disc containing a full-speed version of the complete version as well as a special -20% slow-tempo version of the accompaniment for practice purposes. The concerto is voluminously indexed for your practice and performance convenience.

  • March 26, 2007 Great score, not only for cello

    The score is easy to read and the cd's are of great help. There are quite a lot of hints in the score when your part starts, so even when the tempo changes it is easy to find your starting point. Difficulty varies very much, not for beginners. With...

    some work to be done by yourself it is a very nice piece even for the double bass, which I play.
