5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderfully atmospheric music 29 Mar 2007
By Jeffrey Davis VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Even if you have purchased the fine Chandos recordings of these works I would still strongly recommend this CD as an essential supplement. There is a unique poetry about Bernard Herrmann's and John Ogdon's collaboration in this music. The Piano Concerto No 1 is a hauntingly atmospheric work with a distinctly "chinese" feel to it. Like Boult's recording of the great Moeran Symphony, I have waited decades for this to appear on CD having greatly enjoyed the two LPs produced in the 1970s. The Second Piano Concerto is a more difficult nut to crack, less immediately appealing than the First Concerto but still a fine work worth persevering with. Cyril Scott's "Early One Morning" is perhaps the most immediately appealing piece; an absolute delight. Strongly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars An almost perfect recording 22 Jun 2007
By Laszlo - Published on
Format:Audio CD
If you like Debussy and Delius at their most exotic, you'll love this. Especially because the performances are outstanding and the sound is Lyrita at its best: sumptous.

3.0 out of 5 stars Wake me when it's over 6 May 2007
By Classic Music Lover - Published on
Format:Audio CD
This is a reissue of recordings made about 25 years ago. At the time, Cyril Scott's music wasn't in vogue, but today his exotic late romanticism/impressionism is popular again. In the First Piano Concerto especially, the pianist and conductor linger over every phrase, treating the work like an exotic hothouse flower. Atmospheric perhaps, but it destroys the structure of the piece, especially in the two outer movements. A newer recording on Chandos by Howard Shelley and Martyn Brabbins is so much more revealing -- while shaving fully five minutes off the performance length. (The 2nd movement does benefit from Ogdon's longeurs, however.) The Second Piano Concerto gives us more of the same treatment, but not to quite the same degree.
