From the first track, it is clear that we are in for some beautiful music from Julian Lloyd Webber, who has arranged music of Delius and John Ireland for cello and piano. Particularly noteworthy is Delius’ Sunset demonstrating warm beautiful cello tone, Delius’ Love’s Philosophy featuring evocative cello playing and wonderful piano accompaniment up and down the keyboard, Ireland’s Baby which has a warm you-can’t-not-smile feel to it, Delius’ somber (and thoroughly enjoyable) 3 Ravens, and finishing off the recording is Ireland’s In Summer Woods featuring Jiaxin Cheng on cello. The pianist throughout is John Lenehan, and he does a fine job as an accompanist, offering depth of feeling and warmth in his playing. Overall this is beautiful music played well, and if you are Delius fan or an Ireland fan, you will likely enjoy these arrangements very much. I am very pleased to have added this to my collection.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
