Album Description
LEGENDARY PERFORMANCES ON CD FOR THE FIRST TIME! Ernest John Moeran (1894-1950), still the least-known significant English composer of his generation, composed his violin concerto in 1942. It was first performed by Arthur Catterall and conducted by Sir Henry Wood at a Promenade Concert on July 8, 1942. The positive individuality of Moeran's music, which grew in strength as he became older, proves him to be a composer with something to say, and an unwavering judgment about the way in which it must be said. Moeran's art is above all a lyrically nostalgic one--something in his Celtic ancestry determined this, perhaps, for he was half Irish.
