E.J. MOERAN (1894-1950): Rhapsody No. 2 (London Philharmonic Orchestra; Sir Adrian Boult. 1970 LP release), Violin Concerto (John Georgiadis [violin], London Symphony Orchestra; Vernon Handley. 1979 LP release), Rhapsody in F Sharp for Piano and Orchestra (John McCabe [piano], New Philharmonia Orchestra; Nicholas Braithwaite. 1977 LP release).
Catalogue Number: 07J060
Description: More rare and lovely Moeran with Chandos being the only other option for either Rhapsody and the only other stereo recording of the 1941 concerto. The latter is the most "English pastoral" concerto you could hope to find, 35 minutes full of lyrical melody while there is a strong Irish flavor in the 1924 Rhapsody No. 2.
