ALBUM TITLE: Ireland
WORKS: A Downland Suite; Orchestral Poem; Concertino Pastorale, etc
PERFORMER: City of London Sinfonia/Richard Hickox
CATALOGUE NO: CHAN 10912 X (1994)
The mature Ireland is only glimpsed in the 1902 Orchestral Poem, but Hickox ensures you keep listening. Plenty of rewards in the Concertino’s worried lyricism and the Downland Suite (string version).
