Dacapo’s series of the Holmboe concertos ends with four works from the years 1945-56: a concerto grosso ‘for wind, brass and gut’; solo concertos for trumpet and trombone, both matching brilliance with thoughtfulness; and a mellow double concerto for oboe and viola. Cogent, lucid music; excellent performances. Anthony Burton
