Howard Goodall’s And the Bridge is Love (2008) for cello, harp and strings, is the title track on what is Julian Lloyd Webber’s final album as a soloist, having being forced into early retirement due to a devastating neck injury.

Goodall’s haunting piece was written in memory of a teenage cellist, the daughter of a friend.  The Naxos release features this 10-minute composition, alongside works by Elgar, Walton, Delius, Ireland and William Lloyd Webber, in performances accompanied by the English Chamber Orchestra.
