Sheku Kanneh-Mason is best known to those outside Britain as the phenomenal young cellist who played for the wedding of Prince Harry and Megan Markle, but in Britain he's quickly becoming almost as famous as they are. His second album, recorded last year in Abbey Road Studios when he was twenty years old, features the Elgar Cello Concerto with the London Symphony Orchestra conducted by Sir Simon Rattle. (Jacqueline du Pré was the same age when she recorded the same concerto with the same orchestra in 1965). Sheku shares his thoughts on the concerto and his dedication to music with James Jacobs.
