Notes & Reviews:

This two-disc set presents recordings of four British works from the Itter Broadcast Collection, the pristine recording archive of Lyrita founder Richard Itter, featuring fine readings of violin concertos by Benjamin, Moeran, and Bax alongside the European premiere of Walton's Cello Concerto at the Royal Festival Hall with Sir Malcolm Sargent and Gregor Piatigorsky.

This new release features violin and cello concertos by British composers. The first disc features Arthur Benjamin's Violin Concerto as broadcast on the BBC in September of 1961, and E J Moeran's Violin Concerto as broadcast on the BBC in October of 1959. The works feature solo violinists Derek Collier and Alfredo Campoli, respectively. Disc 2 contains Arnold Bax's Violin Concerto, and William Walton's Cello Concerto, both broadcast on the BBC in February of 1957.
