There are significantly fewer unrecorded British piano concertos than violin concertos
(the * indicates the availability of an off-air recording for download):

Alan Bush (1900-1995):  Piano Concerto with baritone, male voice chorus and orchestra  (1935-37)  *
Sir Lennox Berkeley (1903-1987): Concerto for Piano and Double String Orchestra (1958)
Arnold Cooke (1906-2005): Piano Concerto (1940)  *
William Wordsworth (1908-1988): Piano Concerto (1946)  *
Robert Still (1910-1971): Piano Concerto (1970)
Humphrey Searle (1915-1982): Piano Concerto No.1 (1944)
                                                          Piano Concerto No.2 (1955)
Geoffrey Bush (1920-1998): Piano Concerto (1941)
Peter Racine Fricker (1920-1990): Concerto for Piano and small orchestra (1952-54)  *
Iain Hamilton (1922-2000): Piano Concerto No. 2 (1987)  *
Kenneth Leighton (1929-1988): Piano Concerto No.2 (1960)  *
Alun Hoddinott (1929-2008): Piano Concerto No. 3 (1966)  *
John McCabe (1939-2015): Piano Concerto No.3 “Dialogues” (1976/77)  *

Of the five “missing” concertos, the Geoffrey Bush is a very early work and the Robert Still has never been performed. The Lennox Berkeley concerto and the two by Searle continue to be utterly forgotten.

 What about the 2nd Piano Concerto "L'Orient" op. 100 by Joseph Holbrooke?
 Is there any recording of it?

  I actually like «The Song of Gwyn ap Nudd» a lot...

No, the Holbrooke Piano Concerto No.2 has never been recorded. Gareth Vaughan (a member here) may be able to tell us how strong a piece it is.
