The division into Groups 1 and 2 is to differentiate in my own mind between those composers who are better known and whose other works have a certain "currency" and familiarity. It is NOT to distinguish the "good" from the "bad"!!!! But if I was in a position to choose where to go next with new recordings it would be to those in Group 1. (As is my practice an * indicates the availability of an off-air broadcast for download by those interested.)

Group 1:

Gordon Jacob(1895-1984): Cello Concerto(1955)   *

Sir Lennox Berkeley(1903-89): Cello Concerto(1939)  *

Arnold Cooke(1906-2005): Cello Concerto(1972-73)  *

William Wordsworth(1908-88): Cello Concerto(1963)  *

Daniel Jones(1912-93): Cello Concerto(1986)  *

Arthur Butterworth(1923-): Cello Concerto(1997)
         (the only mature concerto listed which is not available in an off-air
                recording for download)

Wilfred Josephs(1927-97): Cello Concerto “Cantus Natalis”(1961-62)   *

Graham Whettam(1927-2007): Cello Concerto(1962)   *

John McCabe (1939-2015); Cello Concerto “Songline” (2007)   *


(I have removed the Alun Hoddinott Cello Concerto of 1949 since the composer withdrew the work.)

Group 2:

Richard Hall(1903-82):  Cello Concerto(1943-44)

Ian Parrott(1916-2012): Concerto breve(1961)   *

Denis ApIvor(1916-2004): Cello Concerto(1976-77)   *

Ronald Stevenson(1928-): Cello Concerto “The Solitary Singer”(1968-94)

David Ellis(1933-); Cello Concerto “February Music”(1977/2004)

David Blake(1936-): Cello Concerto(1992)    *

Christopher Steel(1938-91): Cello Concerto(1988)    *
