The first BMS Historic release, in the Society’s Twenty-Fifth Anniversary year. Digitally remastered and re-released for the first time since its original appearance on LP in 1952, this performance of Sir Arthur Bliss’s mighty Piano Concerto remains for many the most exciting, in both musical and virtuosic terms, yet recorded. The generous coupling includes the two other twentieth-century piano concertos Mewton-Wood recorded before his tragic death at the age of thirty-one in December 1953.

    Record of the Year Finalist (Historic Reissue)

Gramophone Awards 2004


"...(Mewton-Wood’s) dumbfounding account of Bliss’s Piano Concerto ... "

Robert Matthew-Walker - International Record Review - June 2003


"Mewton-Wood gives the performance of his life, a performance of youthful ardour (and endurance) ... a most exciting and satisfactory affair."

Alec Robertson - Gramophone magazine -  November 1953
