I bought this disc for the Haydn Wood violin concerto written in 1928. Having waited so long to hear the work I was disappointed. Yes it is very lyrical, pretty, diverting music but ultimately insubstantial, no more than "light music" (for which Wood became famous) albeit of a superior quality. I had never heard of Lionel Sainsbury before but his violin concerto is a revelation. Written in 1989 it is a marvellous addition to the 20th century violin concerto repertoire. It is everything that the Wood is not: an ambitious, solidly constructed major work with colourful orchestration and a heroic role for the soloist. It is passionate and romantic with a rhapsodic slow movement and a glorious finale,the longest movement of the three. Yet for all that it manages to be very much contemporary. Lorraine McAslan, who premiered the concerto, gives a wonderful performance. If this concerto does not enter the regular repertoire there is no justice. If you too are unfamiliar with Lionel Sainsbury but are a lover of beautiful music and superb violin playing don't hesitate to buy this disc.
