"Frankel was known mostly as a leading British composer of film music and as such, you can hear the dramatic movie "sound" in his concert pieces. Over the years his music became more complex but still held his own lyrical sound style. The compelling and emotional Violin Concerto is an earlier work, less experimental than the later Viola Concerto, but still a very modern concerto with its bizarre and surprising waltz-like final movement. The three pieces performed here display a truely unique craftsmanship and heartfelt intensity that must be recommended in the highest degree. Check it out!"
