These symphonies concertantes for assorted wind and string soloists are typically spacious and mellifluous, though except for the gently plaintive Larghetto of the C major they lack the distinctive melodic allure of JC’s best music. Performances, if not always immaculate, are appropriately urbane, with unhurried tempi and deft, well-balanced solo contributions. Richard Wigmore
