Two wonderful cello works from WHRB broadcast.
Never heard them before – what the wonderful music by two British composers!

Lynn Harrell plays Herbert Cello concertos.
Since the WHRB broadcasted Victor Herbert First Cello Concerto by Lynn Harrell I got hooked on Herbert. I generally am not big fun of British composers but I do love a lot what Herbert did. It is in a way “light” and not intellectually demanding. Compare to other concertos it sounds more like “salon” concerto but it is still very beautiful…. 

Among the CDs that I got recently there is one absolutely stunning:

London London 417 672: Academy of St. Martin-in-the-Fields, Neville Marriner, conductor. Lynn Harrell, Cello

Victor Herbert:
                     Cello Concerto No. 1 in D Major, Op. 8
                     Cello Concerto No. 2 in E minor, Op. 30
                     Five Pieces for Cello and Strings

If you never heard the Herbert’s Cello Concerto you might try getting them. I have a few versions by Yo-Yo Ma, Georges Miquelle and James Kreger but the recent discovery of Lynn Harrell and Marriner sound very “mutually” – beautiful music and the truly beautiful play….

Gerald Finzi's Cello Concerto
fiogf49gjkf0d

This morning, while driving to work, the Classical station was playing the first movement of Gerald Finzi's Cello Concerto (14 July 1901 - 27 September 1956):

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Cello Concerto in A minor, Op 40, was composed by Gerald Finzi in 1955.

The piece is in three movements:

I. Allegro moderatoII. Andante quietoIII. Rondo: Adagio - Allegro giocoso

The concerto was written as the result of a request by John Barbirolli, and first performed by Barbirolli and the Hallé Orchestra, with Christopher Bunting as the soloist at the Cheltenham Music Festival on 19th July, 1955.

I sounded quite interesting but I was unable to catch the interpreter's name.

Best,
Tuga

Weilerstein and Barenboim play Carter Cello Concerto
fiogf49gjkf0d
Today on WFMT's New Releases program, Lisa Flynn played a live recording of Elliott Carter's Cello Concerto.  
Composed in 2001, this performance I believe is from the fall of 2012.  
Daniel Barenboim conducts the Berlin Staatskapelle Orchestra, 
and they sounded great supporting the young soloist Alisa Weilerstein.  
I heard her in a recital here in Chicago a few months ago, and liked her playing quite a lot.
