Notes and Editorial Reviews

World premiere recordings

Recorded: St Jude-on-the-Hill, Hampstead Garden Suburb, London, 20-22 September 2010

Cellist Raphael Wallfisch plays in his warm-hearted, romantic style this fascinating exploration of unknown cello concertos by York Bowen, Alan Bush and Havergal Brian. York Bowen calls his big romantic piece a Rhapsody for Cello and Orchestra, while Alan Bush terms his four-movement virtuoso vehicle a ‘Suite’. Brian’s Cello Concerto dates from 1964 but is in an unexpectedly light and engaging style quite different to his writing in most of the symphonies, which will surely find him new friends. Three notable discoveries, and all who hear them will be wondering why they have not been recorded before. Read more /> Read less
