Notes & Reviews:

In the third volume of the orchestral works of Cyril Scott, Martyn Brabbins and BBC Philharmonic take us further on the journey of this unique composer's musical landscape. Although an English composer, Scott studied composition in Frankfurt at the Hock Conservatoire, and became part of the 'Frankfurt Gang', which included Percy Grainger and Roger Quilter.

BBC Music Magazine
... the latest instalment from Chandos continues to acquaint us with sadly unfamiliar delights - especially Scott's one-movement Violin Concerto, forgotten since the 1920s. A fascinating work very much of its time, its idiom hints perhaps at Delius, but parallels with early Bartók and the Szymanowski seem more apposite; Olivier Charlier is an eloquent soloist.

Gramophone Magazine
Scott's violin Concerto (c1925) inhabits some of the same territory as the Delius a decade earlier. Both composers employ a rhapsodic continuity based on melodic arabesque coloured by luscious chords. The purely orchestral works stem initially from the first few years of the 20th century, when Scott's reputation was growing... Scott's command of the orchestra still sounds astonishing - no wonder film composers such as Bernard Herrmann admired him decades later. These are again fine performance and recordings.
