Moeran: Rhapsodies Nos. 1/ 2

Shipping time: In stock | Expected delivery 1-2 days | Free UK Delivery
Ernest John Moeran's Rhapsodies occupy a significant place among his orchestral compositions. Each is marked by melodic exuberance, inventive scoring and formal mastery. Moeran's gift for imbuing his music with folkloric tunes that are actually his own is especially evident in the First Rhapsody and in his first orchestral work, In the Mountain Country. First performed in 1943, the Rhapsody in F sharp major for piano and orchestra is unashamedly popular in style, with an appealing tunefulness. JoAnn Falletta serves as Music Director of the Buffalo Philharmonic and Virginia Symphony in the United States and Principal Conductor of the Ulster Orchestra in Northern Ireland.

"In the Ulster Orchestra's robust performances of the three early's possible to hear Moeran's steadily increasing confidence, both in his writing for orchestra and in handling form...Frith is the committed, appropriately energetic soloist." --The Guardian 2nd Jan 2014

"sympathetically conducted by JoAnn Falletta...Celtic pastoralism with astringent chromatic harmonies and sometimes stormy emotions." --The Times 28th December 2013
