Produced in association with BBC Radio 3 and the BBC Concert Orchestra.

The Walton and the Bliss Violin Concertos make a compelling programme, given added interest here by the revival of the original version of the Walton Concerto, unheard since the early 1940s. After the earliest performances, Walton rescored it without altering the solo part, and in this superb new recording featuring the eloquent violin of Lorraine McAslan, we can fully appreciate the composer’s first thoughts, which perhaps are more a reflection of the pre-Second World War musical world. The Bliss Concerto remains the most impressive British violin concerto not in the day-to-day repertoire, and Lorraine McAslan not only underlines its lyrical qualities but also plays the complete version, reinstating the minor cuts that are sometimes made.

“With its consistent musical excellence, faultless recording, and marked originality of text and coupling, it would grace anyone’s shelves. I recommend it most warmly, both to those who already know these concertos and to those who don’t.” Nigel Harris, MusicWeb International, January 2018
