Title: SOME unrecorded British Violin Concertos, 1943-2009
Post by: Dundonnell on June 19, 2019, 06:52:04 pm

Can I begin by emphasising that this is not a definitive list and that it is very much a personal selection.

The recent news of the recording of the William Wordsworth Violin Concerto provided the incentive for this list of 23 unrecorded violin concertos.

1943: Stanley Bate No.2
          Ruth Gipps
1947-50:Stanley Bate No.3
1948: Sir Eugene Goossens Phantasy Concerto
1950: Grace Williams
1952: Franz Reizenstein
1953-54:Peter Racine Fricker No.2 (Rhapsodia Concertante)
1954: John Joubert
1958: Arnold Cooke
1959: John McCabe No.1 "Sinfonia Concertante"
          Robert Simpson
1960: Alun Hoddinott No.1
1966: Daniel Jones
1969: Robert Still
1972: Iain Hamilton No.2 "Amphion"
1978: Arthur Butterworth
1980: John McCabe No.2
1992: William Mathias
1995: Alun Hoddinott No.2 "Mistral"
1992: Wilfred Josephs
2002: Derek Bourgeois
2003-04:Hugh Wood No.2
2009: Sir Peter Maxwell Davies No.2 "Fiddler on the Shore"

(There are of course others by composers like Denis ApIvor, Ronald Stevenson, Malcolm Lipkin and David Ellis.)

A more "restrained" response would be helpful😉You will, I hope, note the inclusion of the violin concerto by a certain Bourgeois
