Notes & Reviews:

Sir Edward Elgar's sublime Cello Concerto receives an impassioned new performance from Steven Isserlis, the Philharmonia Orchestra and Paavo Järvi. With additional works by Sir William Walton and Gustav Holst, as well as a miniature suite for solo cello by Imogen Holst, this is unquestionably one of the year's most eagerly awaited releases.

BBC Music Magazine, March 2016
This mesmerising meditation couldn't be in better hands.

Sunday Times, 28th February 2016
Isserlis's playing of the solo part in the Elgar evokes an elegy for a lost world, while he captures perfectly the bittersweet languor of the Walton.

The Guardian, 3rd March 2016
Older, wiser and even more convincing [than his first recording of the Elgar]...Isserlis's cello rages against the dying of the light, sounding angry yet still beautiful, and under JSrvi the orchestra is full-bodied but focused.
