Cellist Sheku Kanneh-Mason set social media abuzz immediately after his royal wedding performance last month. But many classical music lovers had already set eyes and ears on the talented English musician. Mason came into the spotlight when he won the prestigious BBC Young Musician award in 2016. Signed to Decca Classics, his debut album 'Inspiration' features Shostakovich's Cello Concerto No.1, the piece Sheku performed in the BBCYM final. Recorded live with City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, Inspiration also includes a broad range of new cello arrangements, from Saint-Saëns' "Le Cygne (The Swan)" to Bob Marley's "No Woman, No Cry."
