This programme is well conceived and draws some truly moving playing. The coda to Bridge's Oration makes a serious challenge for the title of 'most beautiful ending to a cello concerto' Isserlis.

Schelomo is an extraordinary work where Bloch seems to have created a new musical language inspired by Jewish music dating back thousands of years. Often mistaken for film music, Schelomo's immediacy and descriptiveness has influenced many film composers.

Isserlis plays the 'Marquis de Corberon' Stradivarius of 1726, formerly owned by Zara Nelsova who was the first to record Bloch's Schelomo's with the composer conducting.
