This really is an excellent disc. The D major sonata is an impressive work, expansive, lyrical, expressive, and with some hints towards Elgar in the last movement. And the twelve short pieces are a delight. I shall certainly be buying more of Parry's chamber music.
We hear so much of Parry being influenced by Brahms and Schumann, and of course he was, but is the influence really that much more apparent than it is in many of the works of, say, Faure? The more Parry I hear, the more apparent it becomes that, despite influences, he developed his own voice. He certainly deserves his current revival.
If you like Brahms, Faure, and Elgar, I am sure you will love this disc.
