Description: Except for one work, this release duplicates a 1994 Chandos issue which is the only other recording available of the two-violin concerto from 1929, a slender-enough work of 15 minutes but one whose brush with bitonality in its second movement and other mildly "modern" tendencies would have pricked up ears at the time. Janice Graham, Sarah Ewins (violins), Andriy Viytovych (viola), Anna Pyne (flute), Philip Harmer (oboe), English Sinfonia; Howard Griffiths.
