Good original music for two cellos is quite rare to find and over the years arrangements have greatly enriched the classical repertoire. In this recording internationally celebrated cellist Julian Lloyd Webber has taken music from Monteverdi to Arvo Pärt – much of it originally written for two voices – and adapted it to the medium of two cellos and accompanying piano, sometimes including other instrumentation. These unique arrangements, which he performs with his wife Jiaxin Lloyd Webber, allow their cello voices to blend together as they explore music of lyricism, quiet melancholy and tuneful energy.

BBC Music Magazine

December 2013

***

“The most worthwhile tracks surround the cellists' effusions with space, air and Catrin Finch's harp...Throughout, John Lenehan's piano gives helpful support.”

Gramophone Magazine

December 2013

“This is expressly a CD for those who enjoy a pair of cellos, beautifully played and lended together in slow lyrical tunes, with a stylish piano accompaniment.”

MusicWeb International

25th March 2014

“The programme is undeniably attractive, if somewhat unvaried in manner.”
