Douglas Cameron (cello). BBC Symphony Orchestra (leader, Paul Beard ), conducted by Clarence Raybould 8.4 app. Interval
From a concert-hall in the South
Elgar's Cello Concerto is a work of haunting musical beauty, and from the technical and interpretative points of view, one of the finest, if not the finest, ever written for this much neglected instrument. It was composed at the end of the period that Elgar spent at Brinkwells, Fittleworth, in Sussex, and was actually the last of his big works, although he lived for another fifteen years.
It was first performed by Felix Salmond with the London Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Elgar himself, at Queen's Hall, on October 27, 1919.
