I am delighted it was the full Concerto that was performed.  This may be a world premiere.  According to John Purser's book on Chisholm in the South African premiere the 4th movenent was dropped and the 2nd movement scherzo concluded the work.  I think this may have been true of the Edinburgh Festival performance [As I am in the USA I cannot check the Purser book].

That would have ruined the work; well, maybe not completely, but the four movements provide a very satisfying structure, and not having the last movement would mean missing out on a tour de force. Maybe it was too difficult? It really is a fast and furious finale.

I'm looking forward to the broadcast, but it was stated that no date has been scheduled as yet.
