£5.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

The Second Symphony, by Sir Lennox, as presented on this album, was originally written in the mid-fifties, but revised by the composer, in 1976. His stated reasons for the revision, were that, when he originally wrote the Symphony in 1956/57, he was somewhat pre-occupied with keeping the "various orchestral colours distinct" (in his own words), and that the work would gain from a freer and more robust treatment.

1) I Lento-Allegro-Lento 2) II Scherzo (Allegro vivace) 3) III Lento 4) IV Allegro

Berkeley's Piano Concerto in B flat, was composed in 1947 for the pianist Colin Horsley, who was also the solist at the work's premiere.

Side Two : Piano Concerto in B flat Op.29, by Berkeley (1947) :-
1) I Allegro moderato 2) II Andante 3) III Vivace
