Notes & Reviews:

Many of Sir Hamilton Harty's works, such as An Irish Symphony and With the Wild Geese, recorded on Naxos 8554732 are overtly Celtic in character, with titles and programs that proclaim their Irishness. The romantic Piano Concerto retains the influence of Irish folk-music through its beguiling conter-melodies and air of lingering melancholy. The rarely heard Fantasy Scenes (From an Eastern romance) paints a sumptuous 'Arabian Nights' picture of the East, as made popular at the time by Rimsky-Korsakov's 'Scheherazade'.
