Series: Music Minus One Publisher: Music Minus One Format: Softcover Audio Online Composer: Edward Elgar

Performed by Anatoli Krastev, violoncello

Accompaniment: Plovdiv Philharmonic Orchestra

Conductor: Nayden Todorov



Sir Edward Elgar's magnificent Concerto for Violoncello and Orchestra was a very personal one for the composer and a tremendous success when it first appeared on the scene. Since that moment it has remained a staple of the repertoire. It was a specialty of the late Jacqueline du Pré and was accordingly featured in the 1998 film Hillary and Jackie. Now it's yours to enjoy in a magnificent MMO digital recording. Famed European cellist Anatoli Krastev gives a virtuoso performance in this masterwork, then steps aside so you can fill his shoes alongside Maestro Todorov and the Plovdiv Philharmonic. Enjoy! Includes an authoritative music score with informative liner notes; as well as online audio featuring a complete performance of the concerto with orchestra and soloist, then a second performance minus the cello soloist so you can play along with the orchestra.

Audio is accessed online using the unique code inside the book and can be streamed or downloaded. The audio files include PLAYBACK+, a multi-functional audio player that allows you to slow down audio without changing pitch, set loop points, change keys, and pan left or right.
