Format: Audio CD
There cannot be a more underrated cello concerto than Finzi's op.40. Written in 1955 only a year before his untimely death, it is a powerful work. Commencing with a dramatic orchestral introduction and ending with a charming and uplifting rondo, the concerto is enthralling over its (in this recording) 39 minutes. Despite having attended more than a thousand concerts over the last 25 years, the Finzi concerto has only turned up in two of them, compared with countless renditions of the Elgar. Is the former considered a little too long? Did it suffer from neglect because it is a big, romantic piece written at a time when acetic modernism was becoming fashionable? Who knows. Leighton's Veris Gratia suffers even more neglect, which is perhaps more understandable, as it is written for the unusual combination of oboe and cello. However, it makes a beautiful companion for the Finzi on this disk, and anyone with any love of English music should not hesitate from becoming familiar with both pieces.
