Award-winning cellist Sheku made history when his debut album, 'Inspiration', reached #11 in the Official UK Album Charts, and he was one of 2018's biggest breakthrough artists across any genre. He has garnered huge critical acclaim for his performances with The Times describing him as “the world's new favourite cellist.”

Now he is back with Elgar, a new album of works anchored around Elgar's Cello Concerto - arguably the best-known work in the classical canon written for solo cello, which saw the 100th anniversary of its first performance this year. Armed with the inspiration of the 1965 recording by his heroine Jacqueline du Pré, Sheku recorded the concerto at the world-famous Abbey Road Studios in an illustrious collaboration with Sir Simon Rattle and The London Symphony Orchestra.

Sheku's innate artistry and thoughtful approach to performing this iconic work are immortalised in this new recording, where nine exquisite pieces, some popular and some less well-known, which provide a musical context to the Cello Concerto. He explains: “All the pieces are connected, either exercising similar emotions to the Cello Concerto, or written around the same time.” They include a new arrangement of Elgar's 'Nimrod', Klengel's 'Hymnus' which was composed for 12 cellos, and Sheku's own arrangement of beloved folk tune 'Blow the Wind Southerly.'

Sheku has been on a whirlwind adventure since winning BBC Young Musician 2016 - performing at TRH the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's wedding, playing at the BAFTAs, partnering with design icon Paul Smith, and winning two Classical BRIT Awards. He is currently an undergraduate student at the Royal Academy of Music.

Daniel Barenboim continues his acclaimed Elgar series with the landmark First Symphony. These new issues mark the first time that indefatigable maestro Barenboim has returned to recording Elgar's symphonic works since the 1970s.

This recording is the latest step in maestro Barenboim's Elgarian journey with the Berlin Staatskapelle, following on from well-received performances of Elgar's Dream of Gerontius, the Cello Concerto (recorded live with Alisa Weilerstein for Decca), and Elgar's Second Symphony - about which the Guardian wrote: “The surging, unquenchable energy of this account is obvious from the opening bars, which are borne on an irresistible flood of sound from the Berlin Staatskapelle…”

This album was recorded live at Berlin's renowned Philharmonie, with the Berlin Staatskapelle and leading Elgarian record producer Andrew Keener.

Barenboim is a passionate Elgarian, counting The Dream of Gerontius as one of his favourite works. As a young man he worked regularly with Sir John Barbirolli, one of the greatest of all Elgar conductors and who was Jacqueline du Pré's partner in the classic EMI recording of the Cello Concerto.

Barenboim's latest Decca release follows his hugely successful Beethoven project of 2012, 2013's Verdi Requiem, and Elgar's Second Symphony in 2014.
