Notes & Reviews:

Dorothy Howell was born in Birmingham and entered the Royal Academy of Music at the unusually early age of 15, where she studied composition under Sir J.B. McEwen. The late John Drummond (a distinguished Controller of BBC Radio Three) considered her the finest British woman composer of her era. Eugene Goossens called Cyril Scott the "father of modern British music"; he has also been referred to as "the English Debussy." A prolific composer, Scott wrote over 400 works, though many of these were piano pieces or songs. Iris Elkington was born in Birmingham and studied piano and composition at the Birmingham and Midland Institute School of Music with Sir Granville Bantock. This was almost certainly Elkington's first work for orchestra, and one can only marvel at the extraordinary mastery that it displays.
