 The Cello Concerto is one of Anglo-Irish composer EJ Moeran’s most important works. Composed in 1945, its deft scoring and memorable melodic material mark it as a work of his maturity. At its heart is the raptly lyrical and profoundly felt slow movement but the whole concerto reflects the singing qualities of the solo instrument. The much-admired Serenade is heard in the 1996 edition of the original 1948 version with eight movements. Lonely Waters is a brief but evocative orchestral rhapsody, and Whythorne’s Shadow a touching fantasy based on an Elizabethan madrigal.

"...The recording is good, with fine performances all round ..."

Don O’Connor - American Record Guide - September/October 2013


"...this is a good place for a Moeran newcomer to start a collection and a compulsory purchase for all other acolytes."
 
Nick Barnard - MusicWeb-International.com - 10 June 2013
 

"...Guy Johnston responds with heaps of poetry and selfless dedication, his manner softer-spoken than that of Raphael Wallfisch on his urgently communicative Chandos version with Norman Del Mar (9/86), and with none of the technical shortcomings that tarnish Coetmore’s otherwise deeply affecting Lyrita account with Boult and the LPO (7/70)..."

Andrew Achenbach - Gramophone magazine - June 2013

"Guy Johnston’s playing here is as fine as in any version yet recorded; and with tempos marginally fleeter than the competition on Chandos, this version may well become the reference recording for the work. Credit for that certainly goes equally to JoAnn Falletta, who also offers the scintillating neo-classical Serenade in its original version containing eight movements instead of the usual six. Excellent, well-balanced engineering completes this wholly recommendable release"
 
David Hurwitz - ClassicsToday.com - June 2013
 

"In Guy Johnston [the Cello Concerto] has a soloist entirely sensitive to its swift and sometimes paradoxical changes of mood: this is an effective performance of a little-heard and underrated work.The Ulster Orchestra is in fine form, and JoAnn Falletta seems to have the measure of Moeran’s elusive and eclectic idiom." ****
