Album Review

Cello Moods is a visceral and relaxing piece of fresh air with Julian Lloyd Webber as your ticket to meditation. Drift deep into a spacious sea of ethereal colors and textures with the sounds of Webber's cello. Webber arranged many of the pieces within this record much to his liking, taking the richness of Claude Debussy's Rêverie to a simpler level, and clearing up the murky settings of Alexander Borodin's Nocturne music. Jackie's Song is an original composed and performed by Webber, a tribute to his adoration of a young prodigy named Jacqueline de Pre, whose career was tragically cut short by the shocking discovery of her multiple sclerosis. Track eight is a candid and eloquent rendition of Sakura-Sakura, the tiny yet lively Japanese traditional piece. A forever favorite will always be Giulio Caccini's Ave Maria, splendid even in these times with the presence of a cello and small backing orchestra. The stage lights up with a hearty and flamboyant rendition of Chopin's Nocturne for piano in E flat major, Op. 9, No. 2. Much of the music is quite tiring after a full listen, but one will find bits and pieces of vibrant, breathing passion and some cracks of dreamy, moonlit musical escapades. ~ Shawn M. Haney, Rovi
