Notes & Reviews:

This CD for Lyrita includes the first-ever recording of Geoffrey Bush's Sinfonietta Concertante for Cello, with Raphael Wallfisch. Though composition was foremost among his many skills, Bush was something of an all-rounder. He performed as both pianist and organist, made regular broadcasts for the BBC, and was also a successful writer. The works included on this disc provide a representative selection of Bush's writing for chamber orchestra.

Gramophone
[Natus est Immanuel is] a deeply touching and notably deft miniature...Throughly engaging, too, are the Two Miniatures for strings from 1948 and Concerto for light orchestra...A winning release, recorded with presence and warmth.
