World Premiere Recordings

John Foulds’s Cello Concerto at last! This is a beautiful, romantic programme. In his booklet notes, Malcolm MacDonald describes Foulds Cello Concerto as “a youthful essay in a melodious late-Romantic idiom ... a succession of memorable tunes in superb orchestration.” He goes on to find the coupling – the Cello Concerto by Lionel Sainsbury – as “unabashedly tonal and opulent melodic language, recalling the neo-romantic idiom of great 20th century composers such as William Walton and Samuel Barber.” Long requested by Foulds enthusiasts after Raphael Wallfisch had revived it in a broadcast over twenty years ago, Dutton Epoch is delighted to make it available following the success of their two-volume survey of Foulds’ shorter orchestral works. Raphael Wallfisch is now joined by Martin Yates and the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra to make this world premiere recording. For Lionel Sainsbury’s equally delightful Concerto, the Dutton Epoch team journeyed to Glasgow where the Royal Scottish National Orchestra relished Sainsbury’s memorable invention, recorded in the presence of the composer.

Janet Banks, The Strad, July 2012

Jeremy Nicholas, BBC Music Magazine, July 2012
