Notes & Reviews:

John Ireland drew musical inspiration from his English heritage, its poets and landscapes. He became a celebrated composer during the first half of the 20th century, championed by conductors such as Sir Adrian Boult. Boult conducted the premiere of 'These things shall be' in 1937, encouraged Ireland to expand his 'Comedy Overture' from a brass band work into the orchestral 'A London Overture' and popularized the Piano Concerto played here by celebrated Australian pianist Eileen Joyce. Boult programmed this Promenade concert in 1949 to mark Ireland's 70th birthday.
