 Interview, Matthew Barley on Tavener's The Protecting Veil

The boundary-crossing British cellist talks to David about his new recording of John Tavener's vast, sweeping concertante work for the cello.

 Recording of the Week, Little Britten

Cellist Matthew Barley marks the centenary of the composer’s birth with a recital centring on the Third Cello Suite, whilst Edward Higginbottom and The Choir of New College Oxford bring a vital, pleasingly rough-round-the-edges approach that recalls Britten’s own children’s choirs to the scared choral music.
