Former Spartan Press Cat. No.: SP1250
Good original music for two cellos is quite rare to find and over the years arrangements have greatly enriched the classical repertoire. In these pieces, internationally celebrated cellist Julian Lloyd Webber has taken music from Purcell to Rachmaninov—much of it originally written for two voices—and adapted it to the medium of two cellos and accompanying piano. These unique arrangements, which he performs with his wife Jiaxin Lloyd Webber on a Naxos CD (see back cover for details) and on tour, allows their cello voices to blend together as they explore music of lyricism, quiet melancholy and tuneful energy.
