5.0 out of 5 stars The bouquet of flowers 2 Sep 2008
Format:Audio CD
This piece, Coleridge-Taylor's last, finds him returning to his exuberant and spontaneous best. I'm a bit biased to say the very least, but I have to say that some of his works can at times have an over-embellished, slightly laboured feel - a bit clunky and Victorian/Edwardian sounding - but still not without its charm. The Violin Concerto is a great piece. The story of the Concerto itself is a fascinating one. The first version, based on an African-American spiritual, was rejected by the Americans who commissioned it, and the second was lost at sea. The Concerto here was written just in time for its American premiere but the stress and overwork that went into it, all had a part in the composers premature and tragic death from pneumonia brought on by exhaustion. Maud Powell, the violinst it was written for, said seeing it for the first time was like receiving a bouquet of flowers. This piece is earning Coleridge-Taylor a very well-deserved and very overdue revival. Charles Elford - author of Black Mahler The Samuel Coleridge-Taylor Story

5.0 out of 5 stars Much the best recording of this concerto 17 Oct 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
For some strange reason this performance appears to have languished in Lyrita'a archives for a long time before being released.

I have come to know this work through Marwood's Hyperion recording. Tasteful and well played as that is McAslan and Braithwaite and the LPO knock it into a cocked hat .

This is a much more passionate and thrilling account from first note to last . McAslan is surely one of the most underrated of violinists as her marvellous Britten on Naxos demonstates. In this recording there is a sense of yearning as well as great character that escapes Marwood and Brabbins entirely on Hyperion .

The couplings are charming and Bredon Hill a bit of a find .

Very highly recommended.

Fine recording of music by a little-known but fascinating British composer with a lot of talent and a life story that makes one wish he had lived longer!
