By Thomas Martin on January 19, 2013
Format: Audio CD
Now I realize that an adjective such as "amazing" is very hyperbolic, perhaps even juvenile, but I just wanted to communicate my enthusiasm for this recording. The Elgar concerto needs no introduction from me, but suffice it say, that Walton's performance has a certain coolness,as well as emotional heft, to make me set aside the du Pre recording Elgar: Cello Concerto; Sea Pictures forever (I never truly got "on board" with that recording, or Elgar's "Sea Pictures" -as much as I admire the artistry of Janet Baker).

But what makes this particular CD so memorable is Walton's performance of the Myakovsky (or Miakovsky) "Cello Concerto." If you love great cello music - or just great music - and you don't know Myakovsky two great concerti (the cello and violin concertos Tchaikovsky / Myaskovsky: Violin Concertos) - then acquire this CD and the Repin immediately - end of story! My reference recording for the Cello Concerto has always been the Rostropovich/Sargent recording Prokofiev: Sinfonia Concertante; Miaskovsky: Cello Concerto, but the Walton performance sounds fresher and a little more "objective" than the sometimes overly effusive Slava - but I wouldn't live without both recordings. High recommended!

A master of the cello, his understanding of the music is deep and passionate. I consider him the world's leading cellist.
