Notes & Reviews:

The rediscovery of the music of the Edinburgh composer Charles O'Brien (1882 - 1968) continues with this second CD of his orchestral music. Two expansive 'concert overtures', the bright, Schumannesque To Spring and dark, Lisztian The Minstrel's Curse - symphonic poems in all but name - - contrast with two charming miniatures from O'Brien's youth and a colorful evocation of Scottish life, in a suite consisting of a tone-poem, an heroic elegy and a dancing finale.
