This release pays tribute to the distinguished Danish cellist Erling Blöndal Bengtsson who died on 6 June 2013 at the age of 81. Using tapes from Icelandic Radio, issued for the first time, Bengtsson plays Walton's Cello Concerto, written for Bengtsson's mentor Piatigorsky, and which he played many times including several performances conducted by the com- poser. Also included is Khachaturian's Cello Concerto - both are new to his discography.
William Walton (1902-1983)
