Synopsis

Product Description
Possibly one of the rarest recordings of all time: the violin concerto by Douglas Coates (better known for choral and organ music) was broadcast in 1951, after which the BBC destroyed or re-used the tape as was their custom. Coates, a writer in romantic style, like Bax, Delius an Moeran, was so angry with the modernist attitudes at the BBC that he tore up the score and parts. The work was believed completely lost until we came across the off-air recording which Coates had made, of which only two original copies exist. We are delighted to have re-discovered this music. Moeran's cncerto dating from a few years later has also been relatively neglected. This performance again comes from a BBC broadcast.
