Two lovely works by Granville Bantock: In the Far West (c.1899, revised 1912) and Scenes from the Scottish Highlands (1913). Bantock was a masterly writer for strings - The Pierrot of the Minute (1909), the Amphibian prologue to Fifine at the Fair (1912) and the Celtic Symphony (1940) are further examples of his virtuosic handling of this demanding and technically-challenging orchestration. It is great to see Douglas Bostock still very much active in the recording studio - a champion of neglected British music.
