Clyne / Elgar - Dance / Cello Concerto
Segev, Inbal / Lso

This formidable release features Inbal Segev performing Elgar’s emotive Cello  Concerto coupled with DANCE, an inspiring new work by Grammy-nominated  English composer Anna Clyne that was commissioned by Inbal. On this powerful  recording, Marin Alsop conducts the London Philharmonic Orchestra. Marin introduced Inbal to Anna, sparking a special synergy between the three women. While Anna was composing DANCE, a  five-movement concerto inspired by the 13th-century Persian poet Rumi, further connections ensued. Anna’s soulful and vibrant  music combines cultures that include her Irish-English family, Polish-Jewish ancestry and Inbal’s Israeli-American heritage.  Inbal expounds, “Anna’s music has an old-soul sensibility but is fresh and modern at the same time. This juxtaposition of old and  new has always appealed to me; it suits my playing, as well as the tone of my 1673 Ruggieri cello.”  Inbal’s idea to record Anna Clyne’s DANCE alongside Elgar’s Cello Concerto is timely: the two works were composed exactly  100 years apart. Inbal enthuses, “It is so rewarding to record and perform the work of a contemporary female composer whose  music withstands comparison with Elgar’s. The two pieces share a certain sensibility – a romanticism, warmth and humanity –  that transcends any stylistic differences.”  Elgar’s Cello Concerto, written in the wake of World War I, is deeply reflective. Anna Clyne’s DANCE is optimistic and  forward-looking. Inbal’s recording of these two cello concertos is timeless.
