The English composer John Gardner has been largely neglected, in spite of his prolific output. His career began with great promise before the war, to be resumed gradually afterwards, but seldom with the success he seemed to deserve. This recording should help to re-establish his reputation with two relatively early works written in the post-war years, the Symphony No. 1, \a superbly crafted work... by a subtle and imaginative orchestrator" (Paul Conway/MusicWeb International) and the Piano Concerto No. 1, both premi?¿red by Barbirolli. The Piano Concerto here receives only its third performance. 'Midsummer Ale' is a classic piece of British light music with delightfully catchy melodies."
