This review is from: Moeran: Cello Concerto, Serenade, Lonely Waters, Whythorne's Shadow (Audio CD)
There are four pieces recorded here. They reveal two very different aspects of E.J.Moeran There is a bit of fun based on an Elizabethan madrigal - 'Whythorne's Shadow' - Tudor English neo-classicism. Similar but of greater significance is the eight movement suite 'Serenade' It is light-hearted with touches of humour. The other side of 'Jack' is found in 'Lonely Waters'. sad, rhapsodic, melancholy, with sound of birds - closing with a moment of singing. Touching, particularly when remembering his death while falling into water. But above all these things is a tremendous performance of one of the world's great cello concertos. Guy Johnston accompanied by the Ulster Orchestra conducted by JoAnn Falletta - is mesmerising in power and control while producing a lovely sound appropriately recorded at the Ulster Hall in Belfast. There is tension and action as well as gentle reflection. The slow movement reveals the singing of the cello. The Irish feeling of the finale is exciting and passionate, deeply felt with a taut conclusion. This concerto merits playing more often.
