Notes & Reviews:

Kenneth Leighton wrote his first work for solo cello as a 20-year-old student at The Queen's College, Oxford. Completed on New Year's Eve of 1949, the piece was a sonata in three movements in F minor. Though it unfortunately does not remain intact, it was the provenance of the earliest work on this disc, the Elegy for cello and piano, Op. 5. Leighton would continue to write for the cello on a regular basis, with a plethora of compositions that include the instrument in various guises: as a solo instrument, with piano, in a concerto role, in various chamber permutations, and within an orchestra. This particular collection focuses on the substantial contribution of solo works (including those with piano) that Leighton made to the cello repertoire.
