Bookmark and Share

Throughout the week Classic FM's presenters bring you the best new recordings, including world exclusives and premiere broadcasts of latest releases. This week Award-winning cellist Sheku Kanneh-Mason returns with his third album, Elgar, featuring music from Fauré, Bloch, Klengel, and of course – Elgar himself. The focal point of Sheku's latest release is Elgar's legendary ‘Cello Concerto', a piece which was first performed 100 years ago last October. The concerto was recorded at Abbey Road studios and made in the new Dolby Atmos sound, creating a more immersive and ‘high definition' listening experience.

It was back in 2018 when Sheku became a household name, following his stunning performance at the wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. Sheku first began to learn the cello when he was just six years old, before going on to study at the Royal Academy of Music where he held a junior scholarship. He is still a student at the academy, studying with British cellist Hannah Roberts.
