The outstanding British cellist Jamie Walton returns to disc on Signum, accompanied by the Philharmonia orchestra under Alexander Briger. This disc includes William Walton’s 1975 revision to the final movement of the cello concerto, which has never before been recorded or publically performed (as well as a performance of the original final movement).

This disc completes an Anglo-Russian trilogy of recordings by Jamie with this orchestra and conductor, proceed by pairings of Elgar & Myaskovsky (Cello Concertos - SIG 116) and Britten & Shostakovich (Cello Symphony & Cello Concerto No  2 SIG 137) Both discs were released to great critical acclaim:
Elgar & Myaskovsky (SIG 116): "This is probably the best performance of the Elgar Cello Concerto that I have heard. Walton cannot be beaten. I shall treasure this recording - literally: I shall hoard it against a musically rainy day" - Paul Adrian Rooke - The Elgar Society Journal

"... this disc derves the warmest recommendation."

Nigel Simeone

International Record Review - February 2011

"...A most valuable and enjoyable disc, adding impressively to the series Jamie Walton has recorded for Signum..."

Edward Greenfield

Gramophone - March 2011

"...Jamie Walton’s performance is excellent."

"...Both works share alert accompaniments from Alexander Briger and the Philharmonia, but I’d advise that you listen to the Shostakovich first – the pessimistic feelings engendered will then be soothed away in a torrent of Waltonian warmth."
