Finzi Clarinet Concerto, Cello Concerto


Finzi Clarinet Concerto, Cello Concerto


"The Cello Concerto was Yo-Yo Ma's first recording and alerted many to the sheer bigness of Finzi's inspiration. The pastoral-pensive writing is beautifully conveyed here - I'm not sure I've ever heard it done better...this performance still earns the highest accolades." Jonathan Woolf, "The glorious Clarinet Concerto with its heart-stopping slow here given a definitive performance." Colin Anderson, IRR 'Rosette' **** PENGUIN GUIDE 2010

"John Denman's recording - the concerto's first - still holds up remarkably well. It is relaxed and improvisatory, with the New Philharmonia Orchestra providing glorious orchestral backing under Vernon Handley. It's wonderful to have this Lyrita recording available on CD at last."   Gramophone
