Paul Patterson; Kenneth Leighton; Gordon Jacob: British Violin Concertos



Shipping time: In stock | Expected delivery 1-2 days | Free UK Delivery
These three major British concertos span fully 70 years. Kenneth Leighton’s Concerto is a work of tensile urgency, scored with great imagination, and ending in an arch-like Epilogue of impassioned intensity. Written for soloist and string orchestra, the Concerto by Gordon Jacob contains at its heart a threnodic slow movement cast in long, moving paragraphs and accompanied by poetic effects. Written for (and premiered by) the soloist in this recording, Paul Patterson’s Violin Concerto No. 2 (‘Serenade’) is rich in high spirits; songlike, wistful and exuberantly sparkling. Clare Howick is a specialist in twentieth-century British music and her recital of British violin music – Elgar, Bridge, Delius, Cyril Scott – was released in September 2017 (8.573790).
