Edward Elgarís concerto for violoncello, his last major work, is a cleanly structured and emotionally charged composition. It is no wonder that this work is of central importance in the cello literature. Jonathan Del Marís editorial skills show themselves in the exacting placement of dynamics, articulation and expression markings. The edition restores all Elgarís solo cello fingerings and bowings and offers a facsimile of the original solo cello part in the critical commentary. Jonathan Del Mar also documents the performing tradition of the work and its recording under Elgarís baton.
This is the last word on this famous work, a reference edition for every cellist!
