An outstanding collection of cello favourites, all chosen by Julian himself for his 70th birthday. The set features celebrated recordings spanning two decades; all were made with his Barjansky Stradivarius cello which he played for more than thirty years. Widely regarded as one of the most creative musicians of his generation, Julian inspired many new compositions and arrangements for cello - many featured in this new set.
