OUT NOW | Cellist Sheku Kanneh-Mason's New CD: 'Elgar' [LISTEN]

Decca Records has announced the release of British cellist Sheku Kanneh-Mason's new album: 'Elgar'

Decca Records has this week announced the release of British cellist Sheku Kanneh-Mason's new album: 'Elgar'.

Recorded with conductor Sir Simon Rattle and the London Symphony Orchestra, the disc features the Elgar Cello Concerto in E Minor, Frank Bridge's '4 Short Pieces', Ernest Bloch's 'Prelude' and 'From Jewish Life', Gabriel Faure's 'Elegie', Julius Klengel's 'Hymnus' - plus a number of new cello arrangements of Elgar's 'Enigma Variations' and 'Romance' and the traditional folk songs 'Scarborough Fair' and 'Blow the Wind Southerly'.

 

 

"The main piece on the album is Elgar’s Cello Concerto, which I grew up listening to a lot ... it has always been one of my favorite pieces of music, so it was was such a privilege to record ..." Sheku has told The Violin Channel.

"I wanted to also record pieces around it that relate to the Concerto - by either also being written by Elgar, or being by British composers, or written around a similar time ... or simply sharing a mood or theme ..." the 20-year-old 2016 'BBC Young Musician of the Year' has said.

"But essentially it’s just pieces I really love."
