Walter Macfarren, Michael Balfe, Rosalind Ellicott, Samuel Coleridge-Taylor, Roger Quilter & Edgar Bainton

Joseph Spooner's eloquent cello finds exactly the right style for this survey of largely Victorian cello music, including the Cello Sonata in E minor of 1861 by Walter Macfarren, notable for its lyrical impetus and cascading piano accompaniment. Also heard are Michael Balfe's tuneful Sonata in A flat from the late 1860s, and Edgar Bainton's imposing Sonata of 1924, contemporary with sonatas by Delius, Bax and Ireland and with which it shares period and imagery. Coleridge-Taylor's Variations in B minor, Rosalind Ellicott's A Reverie (1888) and a charming Roger Quilter song arrangement (To Daisies) complete a tuneful and original programme.
