English conductor Julia Jones has received enthusiastic acclaim from critics and press for her decisive style of music-making, which cultivates a living, breathing texture of exceptional clarity while bristling with energy. Cellist Alban Gerhardt makes the most famous works sound newly discovered.

Energy, subdued intimacy, and even menace interweave in Schumann’s Fourth Symphony, ostensibly in a sombre minor key, only for a major key conquest to prevail. Haydn’s Second Cello Concerto, with its once disputed authenticity, achieves symphonic proportions. Undoubtedly easier on audience ears than a performer’s technique, it is amiable yet demanding, undeniably a major contribution to the 18th century cello repertoire.
