Sheku Kanneh-Mason - Elgar makes the GRAMOPHONE 'Listening Room'

Bookmark and Share

James Jolly's fortnightly playlist includes a taster of Víkingur Ólafsson's much-anticipated new album 'Debussy - Rameau', Ruby Hughes singing Rhian Samuel's Clytemnestra, Jean-Philippe Collard in Granados's Goyescas and Sheku Kanneh-Mason's Elgar Cello Concerto with Sir Simon Rattle.

A big concerto this week – the much-hyped Elgar from Sheku Kanneh-Mason (it's been a while since I saw an advert on the Tube for a mainstream classical album). It's an impressive release, with solo playing of big personality and a magnificently handled orchestral role, guided by Sir Simon Rattle with masterly style.
