Notes and Editorial Reviews

Frederick Delius’s beautiful songs show his extraordinary gift for melody. John Ireland admired Delius enormously and his songs are inspired by a wide variety of literature, including his hugely popular setting of John Masefield’s Sea Fever. Renowned cellist Julian Lloyd Webber celebrates both composers’ remarkable melodic gifts in these sensitive arrangements, and pianist John Lenehan has received great acclaim for his Naxos recordings of Ireland’s complete piano music.

 A delight for an evening June 23, 2013 By Max S. (SOUTHAMPTON, Hampshire) See All My Reviews "This is my first recordings of Julian Lloyd Webber and the music he plays is so smooth and melodic that it provides a marvellously relaxing and peaceful time. The cello and piano blend well and the music played helps to unwind the body after the stresses of the day. A great pleasure. Thank you. MaxS" Report Abuse
 "Evening Songs" (Delius & Ireland) Julian Lloyd  October 21, 2012 By Anna K. B. (Crockett, CA) See All My Reviews "While the songs of Delius & Ireland are beautiful, I find it somewhat tiresome listening to this collection. As lovely as the music is, many of the songs sound 'alike', even if in subtle ways." Report Abuse
 Quite Beautiful July 12, 2012 By John Wood (Saxtons River, VT) See All My Reviews "If you love Delius and Ireland, as I always have, you will be delighted." Report Abuse
