5.0 out of 5 stars Romantic wallow 17 Jun 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Listening to the music on this well-filled disc, one is reminded of various other composers such as Elgar, Strauss, Rachmaninov..not to mention a few less illustrious names; and yet D'Erlanger (who was a Baron and a successful banker as well as being a composer) manages to weld the disparate influences into well-crafted, effective (and affecting) music that shouldn't fail to appeal to all lovers of late-romantic orchestral music. The main work on the disc is the piano concerto, which, in its time was in the repertoire of such pianistic giants as Moiseiwitsch, Iturbi and Pouishnoff. Like the rest of the music on the disc it is expertly performed and recorded here. At times I felt I was listening to a concerto that might have been written for one of those gorgeous old black and white movies by a film composer of the highest quality, but then I have a weakness for that sort of thing and, if you have too, you will, doubtless, enjoy listening to this disc as much as I have done. I hope that some enterprising record company will record, one day, D'Erlanger's opera based on Tess of the D'Urbervilles.

just about know the composer's name, but when I heard Sursum Corda on an early morning Radio 3 programme I immediately warmed to this late Romantic elegantly crafted music. D'Erlanger was of mixed German/French parentage but long resident in London so Elgar, Massenet and Brahms are all influences.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Valentine 16 Dec 2013
By AndrewCF - Published on
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Chide me if you must, but I am a sucker for this kind of music. The sentimentality to be found in the music of “Barron Freddy” would make Delius blush. It was the unabashedly romantic Violin Concerto and Poeme released on Hyperion that made me aware of this composer. There was more than a whiff of the cinematic side of Korngold – ironically, Korngold’s tenure at Warner Brothers did not occur until the mid-1930s, and all of the music that appears on this Dutton disc and the Hyperion was written before 1934. It would be a difficult argument, I believe, to convince anyone that d’Erlanger had some precognitive ability, but if you close your eyes, it isn’t a stretch to imagine Errol Flynn and Olivia de Havilland accompanied by these luscious scores.

I was hooked by the first bars of the Prelude Romantique, but it is not necessary for me to go piece by piece on this disc. The music has a dreamy melancholy that in no way seems pastoral or Impressionistic. Cynics will probably be amused by the pseudo-Chopin of the Concerto Symphonique, which easily could have understudied Addinsell’s Warsaw Concerto; except for a few rash notes, pianist Victor Sangiorgio does a great job, and Guy Johnson is a first class cellist. Johannes Wildner embraces the sentiment without embarrassment and the BBC Concert Orchestra responds. And what a fine recording this is! If you can be moved by the sweetest of Elgar’s miniatures, you will find a lot of pleasure here.
