5.0 out of 5 stars The two Cyril Scotts 16 Jan 2010
Format:Audio CD
I remember a shrewd critic, some decades ago, surmising that the best finds in Cyril Scott were probably to be made in his voluminous chamber music. There is support for this in the three CDs of this music that Dutton have issued, which contain three most impressive works - the first two string quarters and the Sonata Lirica for violin and piano. Are the works on this new CD of equal quality?

The longest work on this CD is the half-hour First Piano Trio of 1920. It is highly representative of the `first' Cyril Scott, who won a European reputation as the English modernist of his generation, until musical fashion changed abruptly in the mid-1920s and his work began to sound out of date. For a modern listener the strong point of the work is the free rhythm (generated by expanding and contracting motifs), which creates a wonderful sense of floating, of a continuous surge, rising and falling. Notable too is the brilliance of the piano writing (reminiscent of the Piano Concerto) and the imaginative string textures. The weak point of the work (to my ears) is the harmony: beautiful in a rather impersonal way, it lacks expressivity and all sense of direction, with the result that the piece never seems to get anywhere; the climaxes are emphatic, but not clinching. In the greatest possible contrast to this sprawling work is the Second Piano Trio of around 1950 (and also on this CD), which is a model of compactness and has a more astringent harmony, though it is a weakness in all three of Scott's piano trios that the cellist follows the violinist too closely.
