Tim Hugh, principle cellist of the London Symphony Orchestra, is widely regarded as the one of the great British cellists of the 21st century. This recording also features top Russian accompanist Olga Sitkovetsky (piano).
In 2005, Steve Hugh, Tim’s older brother, unexpectedly died of a heart attack. This recording was made on 26th November 2007 amongst the famous acoustics and architecture of the Wigmore Hall in London, at ‘A Concert for Steve’ that the Hugh family had arranged in order to raise funds for the charity, British Heart Foundation.
Hands On Heart is an apt and emotional tribute, but also a poignant collection of mixed classical repertoire for cello and piano including a number of colourful encores such as Rimsky-Korsakov’s ‘Flight of the Bumblebee’ and personal favourites such as Faure’s ‘Apres un Reve’.
The concert was recorded and mastered in high resolution 24-bit/96kHz digital audio by legendary classical engineer Tony Faulkner.
