Splendid, splendid news!!

I have written here and elsewhere (ad nauseam) about neglected symphonies which merit rediscovery but there are a considerable number of concertos which fall into the same category. The Wordsworth Piano and Violin Concertos are both available on You Tube in off-air recordings (the Piano Concerto in a recording conducted by a very young Simon Rattle) but it will be wonderful to have both on disc.

And I see it now features on the list of 'pipeline' recordings on the Toccata website.

I just listened to this recording and it is absolutely lovely.  Highly recommended.  The piano concerto is dramatic and lyrical, very concise.  The 3 Pastoral sketches are just gorgeous with a sense of longing and atmosphere.  The violin concerto reminds me somewhat of Kenneth Leighton in that it is lyrical, dramatic, and mystical.  Performance and sound are excellent.  Can't wait for further releases.

I agree. This is lovely music indeed. I hope very much that we will get a recording of his 6th symphony, which has never been performed.
