The Russian-born composer Vernon Duke (Vladimir Dukelsky) produced a distinguished body of concert music. His Piano Concerto was written for Arthur Rubinstein, who had requested a 'one-movement piano concerto, pianistically grateful and not too cerebral', but it was never orchestrated by the composer and therefore never performed in his lifetime. The American conductor and pianist Scott Dunn completed the work and gave its premi?®re at Carnegie Hall in 1999 to great acclaim. He also performs these works on this disc in their world premi?¿re recording. Duke's Cello Concerto is a mature, overtly romantic work in which the influences of Prokofiev, Stravinsky and Shostakovich can be heard. Dating from the same period, his Homage to Boston suite is dedicated 'to the members of the Boston Symphony', and portrays various people and places in Boston familiar to the composer.
