Julian and Jiaxin Lloyd Webber, cellos
John Lenehan, piano | Catrin Finch, harp
Guy Johnston, cello | Laura van der Heijden, cello

Good original music for two cellos is quite rare to find and over the years arrangements have greatly enriched the classical repertoire. In this recording internationally celebrated cellist Julian Lloyd Webber has taken music from Monteverdi to Arvo Pärt much of it originally written for two voices and adapted it to the medium of two cellos and accompanying piano, sometimes including other instrumentation. These unique arrangements, which he performs with his wife Jiaxin Lloyd Webber, allow their cello voices to blend together as they explore music of lyricism, quiet melancholy and tuneful energy.

Jiaxin Lloyd Webber was principal cello of the Auckland Chamber Orchestra and played regularly with both the Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra and New Zealand Symphony Orchestra. Since moving to London in 2007 she has performed as a soloist at the Royal Festival Hall and broadcast for BBC Radio 3. Jiaxin is married to fellow cellist Julian Lloyd Webber. One of today's leading cellists, he has given the premières of more than fifty new works for cello and has inspired new compositions from composers as diverse as Malcolm Arnold and Joaquín Rodrigo to James MacMillan and Philip Glass. His partnership with pianist John Lenehan began in the mid-1970s and they have since given recitals together all over the world.
