This 2012 Delphian recording by Scottish cellist Philip Higham delves deeply into the suites' expressive potential, and the music's emotional riches are wonderfully communicated in these focused performances. Higham is an accomplished musician, yet he doesn't strive for obvious effects, and while his mastery of the suites' difficulties is apparent, his playing seems effortless. His legato lines and vibrant harmonies make listening almost seem like a luxury, and the warmth of his tone makes even his pizzicati and strummed effects feel vibrant and soothing.

Young British cellist Philip Higham offers impressive interpretations here, grabbing attention right from the hypnotically mournful opening of the first suite, leading into its dance of furtive harmonies and counterpoints. But it's the third suite that stands out, the overwhelming solemnity of its introductory Canto immediately dispersed by the nimbler Marcia and the Dialogo's conversation between bowed and plucked notes, before drawing together the various threads and themes in the lengthy Passacaglia

Andante moderato – Benjamin Britten; Philip Higham. Lento rubato – Benjamin Britten; Philip Higham. Sostenuto – Benjamin Britten; Philip Higham. pizzicato – Benjamin Britten; Philip Higham. Alla marcia moderato – Benjamin Britten; Philip Higham. Philip Higham, one of the only British cellists in generations to have won top prizes at three major international competitions, brings a youthful vigour and deep intelligence to these seminal masterpieces by Britten. He delivers performances of commanding authority and intensity of these three solo suites, inspired by Britten's meeting with Rostropovich but also written as a conscious tribute to Bach's solo cello suites. 48 kHz, 24-bit PCM – Delphian Studio Masters.

The young virtuoso Philip Higham, one of the only British cellists in generations to have won top prizes at three major international competitions, brings both vigour and a deep intelligence to this remarkable music. Although I know most of Britten's music, somehow the solo cello suites had slipped through. Although written for Rostropovich (Britten promised him 6 to mirror those of Bach, but he did not live long enough to fulfil the promise) these performances sound extremely good to my ears and the recording is clear. 3 people found this helpful.
