(disclaimer - Julian Lloyd-Webber is the most over-rated cellist in the world... the musical equivalent of a Kashardian). Seriously - let me know what you like from this bunch (if any), and I'll try and find you some more composers like it... Sometimes we all need a hand in searching through s**t. And there is plenty of s**t music out there.
Some interesting stuff there, blaargh. I might take you up later on your offer, but for the moment I've been familiarising myself with works from some lesser-known composers (Ginastera, Gorecki. Ketelbey, Sullivan, Ives, Martinu etc). I would recommend that people seek out these 'lesser lights' because there's gold in them thar hills. Trouble is, their respective repertoires haven't excited concert programmers too much.
And I can't disagree with your assessment of Lloyd-Webber. Compared to the titans (du Pre, Tortelier, Casals, Rostropovich et al) he is fairy floss.
