Britten Cello Suite No 3. View record and artist details. Record and Artist Details. Composer or Director: John Tavener. I believe that Tavener's later, shorter, by no means dissimilar instrumental work The Repentant Thief (recorded for the Collins Classics 20th Century Plus series) is actually more successful, its inspiration more evenly sustained. But The Protecting Veil needed to be preserved on disc, and this performance, well recorded, is ideal in every way, with a soloist who shapes the long, simple lines effortlessly, and a conductor who is never tempted to push the music on beyond its natural pace.
John Tavener: The Protecting Veil; Thrinos; Britten: Cello Suite No. 3. 1992. Virgin has reissued its 1991 world-premiere recording of Tavener's The Protecting Veil, for cello and strings, along with his Thrinos for solo cello and Britten's Cello Suite No. 3, Op. 87. All are superbly performed by Steven Isserlis, accompanied in The Protecting Veil by the London Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Gennady Rozhdestvensky.
British cellist Steven Isserlis is featured in this premiere recording of two works for cello by John Tavener, The Protecting Veil, for cello and strings, and Thrinos, for solo cello, as well as in Britten's Cello Suite No. The Protecting Veil is essentially a concerto in which the cello almost continuously plays, although it differs from a traditional concerto, in which the opposition between the orchestra and the soloist heightens the musical drama.

John Tavener's Cello Concerto 'The Protecting Veil' is also played with genuine emotional involvement and deeply expressive tones. As for the music, I just can not appreciate it even after many play-backs. I'd rather want all three of Britten's unaccompanied cello suites played by Isserlis on one disc than the only one of them sandwiched between Tavener's curiously earth-bound compositions. 3 people found this helpful.
