In contrast with Elgar's earlier Violin Concerto, which is lyrical and passionate, the Cello Concerto is for the most part contemplative and elegiac. The first performance was a debacle because Elgar and the performers had been deprived of adequate rehearsal time. The work did not achieve wide popularity until the 1960s, when a recording by Jacqueline du Pré caught the public imagination and became a classical best-seller. Elgar made two recordings of the work with Beatrice Harrison as soloist. The concerto had a disastrous premiere, at the opening concert of the London Symphony Orchestra's 1919–20 season on 27 October 1919. Apart from the concerto, which the composer conducted, the rest of the programme was conducted by Albert Coates, who overran his rehearsal time at the expense of Elgar's. Lady Elgar wrote, "that brutal selfish ill-mannered bounder. that brute Coates went on rehearsing. The critic of The Observer, Ernest Newman, wrote, "There have been rumours about during the week of inadequate rehearsal.

Notes

Recorded at Kingsway Hall, London 19th August 1965

Janet Baker - Sea Pictures/ Sir John Barbirolli conducting London Symphony Orchestra
Jacqueline Du Pre's career lasted just 11 years, but within that space of time she achieved a reputation as one of the finest cellists of the twentieth century. Not long afer her debut in 1961, at the age of 16, she played the Elgar Cello Concerto in public for the first time with great success. In August 1965 she recorded the work for HMV. Her conductor was Sir John Barbirolli, a famous Elgar interpreter who as a young man had known the composer. Though Du Pre went on to make many other superlative recordings it is in the Elgar "Concerto", and this recording, that she is most remembered. The work's richly romantic, nostalgically autumnal mood is a fitting and appropriate memorial to an artist who performing career was cruelly cut short by a disease at the age of 42.

In August 1965, Barbirolli made a second Elgar recording with another outstanding young artist, the mezzo-soprano Janet Baker, whose finely sung, imaginative interpretation of the beautiful song cycle "Sea Pictures" makes an ideal coupling for Du Pre's performance.

The famous LP is available in Testament's audiophile reissue. Authentic analogue techniques have been employed in making transfers from the original recording, and high-quality 180 gram pressings have been made from virgin vinyl. The record is issued in a special limited collectors' edition.
