I know that the Chisholm Trust has tried for some time to interest more than one record company in recording the Violin Concerto. The initial idea was to couple it with another Scottish concerto. I was asked to suggest a suitable coupling and, after some thought, picked the William Wordsworth Violin Concerto. Wordsworth was not Scottish but spent a substantial part of his later life living in Kingussie in the Scottish Highlands. Many of his orchestral works were premiered by Scottish orchestras.

Then the feedback was that the companies would prefer an all-Chisholm disc, for which the Van Riebeeck Concerto would have been the logical choice.

However the current parlous nature of company finances now means that the cost of the recording would require the Trust to put up more money than it can command.
