Music of refined energy, redolent as much of Sibelius as of Iberian folk scene or wartime film set, informs Gerhard’s first completed symphony (1941). A contrasted marriage of acerbic serialism, montage and Spanish danse macabre layers the Harpsichord Concerto (1955-6) commissioned by Thurston Dart. Stunning craftsmanship, unmissable premiere recordings. Ates Orga
