Notes & Reviews:

The first arranger of Vivaldi's concertos was Vivaldi himself, and Julian Lloyd Webber's new versions on this recording reflect the composer's pragmatic attitude and zest for experiment. Vivaldi's Concerto in G minor RV 531 is his only original concerto for two cellos. Alongside this appear works both popular and recently discovered, the mercurial moods of the cellos representing instruments from mandolins to hunting horns. Piazzolla's Milonga displays all of his most distinctive hallmarks. Julian and Jiaxin Lloyd Webber's acclaimed album A Tale of Two Cellos can be heard on Naxos 8.573251.

American Record Guide, January/February 2015
Julian Lloyd Webber is a well-known and oft-recorded cellist. Jiaxin works well with him; they play with warmth and are recorded with good balances and clarity. The works are arranged with respect for their original forms, and the Piazzolla movement gives a melodic lyricism to the solo lines not easily attained by the original instrumentation. This is a listener friendly release for people interested in this talented family.
