CD/MC 434 106-2/4 MIASKOVSKY: Cello Concerto TCHAIKOVSKY: Rococo Variations DMIJRI SHOSTAKOVICH: Adagio from "The limpid Stream" Julian Lloyd Webber London Symphony Orchestra Conducted l:>y Maxim Shostakovich The first recording of Miaskovsky's Concerto for thirty-six years. A unique combination with Tchaikovsky's original version of the Rococo Variations and Shostakovich's Adagio from ''The Limpid Stream", rarely recorded . "In this age of hyperbole- when every little-known piece of music becomes a 'neglected masterpiece' - it is increasingly difficult to describe convincingly a work you really do believe in . Yet I feel Miaskovsky's Concerto is one of the loveliest ever written for the cello ." Julian Lloyd Webber
