Notes & Reviews:

Works for violin and piano are an important part of Cyril Scott's chamber music. This disc presents three sonatas which span his output. The capricious and ruminative First Violin Sonata ranks among the most convincing and successful of his earlier large-scale compositions. Sonata Melodica is a more relaxed yet equally quixotic work, while the Third Violin Sonata is one of the most inventive from his later years. A selection of Scott's orchestral music is available as MCPO 8223485.

Fanfare
Cyril Scott, although he composed a number of works for violin and piano and several violin concertos, may still seem to many a pianist's composer. These sonatas, on the other hand, so well and so expressively written for the violin, should go a long way, especially in Howick's and Rahman's sympathetic readings, toward making violinists take a second look at them and listeners give them at least an exploratory hearing. Warmly recommended.
