Notes & Reviews:

"Ireland's Piano Concerto is a rich, colorful and tuneful work with influences from Prokofieff and Ravel, plus exotic coloring and jazziness...My benchmark for the Ireland work is Eric Parkin's stunning performances with Adrian Boult on Lyrita...I like these performances a lot and may even prefer them to the Lyritas. Parlett's notes tell the story well. I recommend this to all fans of English music, strong piano playing, and particularly to people interested in hearing something new and different from Arnold Bax."-American Record Guide
