Nothing to add to this thread except to say thank you for bringing to my attention one of the composers who give me hope.

I'd assumed it would be an Autumn release and am pleased to see it confirmed.  Grin

Listening to the extract from the 'Reel' in the 'Dance Suite', it clearly is from a different musical world than the 'Violin Concerto' and 'Piano Concertos'- altogether lighter.  This recording, I presume, may be only its second full performance. Three movements of the suite ('March', 'Urlar' and 'Reel') were performed in Glasgow in 1932 with Chisholm as pianist and John Barbirolli conducting the Scottish Orchestra.  A full performance was given after this at the 11th International Society for Contemporary Music Festival in Amsterdam on 12 June 1933 with Chisholm again at the piano and Constant Lambert conducting the Concertgebouw Orchestra.  That was its only full performance. [From 'Erik Chisholm, Scottish Modernist (1904-1965): Chasing a Restless Muse' by John Purser (2009)].

I am looking forward to this CD release and to hearing the 'Violin Concerto' in an alternative performance to that broadcast in 2015.  Smiley
