Reizenstein, Bush & Ireland: Sonatas for Violin & Piano (Lyrita SRCD360)

The Steinberg Duo (Louisa Stonehill, violin; Nicholas Burns, piano)



Bush, G: Violin Sonata (First Recording)
Ireland: Violin Sonata No. 2 in A minor
Reizenstein: Violin Sonata in G-sharp, Op. 20

All three of these works were written at times of war. John Ireland's sonata was composed during World War One (1917) and was the work that established Ireland as a composer of note in the UK. The Franz Reizenstein and Geoffrey Bush sontatas come later, composed in 1945, and are far less well known. While all three works maintain a sense of melody and tonality, each composer finds room to push boundaries.

JOHN IRELAND (CHANDOS 10912)

City of London Sinfonia. Conductor, Richard Hickox

Re-issue: originally recorded in 1994

A Downland Suite (Arranged for string orchestra by John Ireland and Geoffrey Bush)
Orchestral Poem
Concertino Pastorale for Strings
Two Symphonic Studies




In 1971, Richard Hickox founded the Richard Hickox Orchestra, which in 1979 became the City of London Sinfonia. Fifteen years later he made this highly praised recording of orchestral works by John Ireland, now made available at ‘classic Chandos’ price.
Gramophone featured this recording in its 2010 Classical Music Guide, stating in its original review that ’Chandos have been doing John Ireland proud over the last few years, and Richard Hickox’s new anthology is well up to the high standards of previous instalments in this valuable series. With rich, refined Chandos sound, this remains a most enjoyable collection... Hickox gives a sensitive account of the Downland Suite and extracts great expressive intensity from the glorious second movement “Elegy”. The Concertino Pastorale is another fine work, boasting a most eloquent opening “Eclogue” and tenderly poignant “Threnody”, towards the end of which Ireland seems to allow himself a momentary recollection of the haunting opening phrase of his earlier orchestral prelude, The Forgotten Rite.‘

JOHN IRELAND and E. J. MOERAN: Choral Music (Naxos 8.573584)

The Carice Singers; David Owen Norris, piano; George Parris, Director



Renowned for his outstanding piano miniatures and solo songs, John Ireland is little known these days as a composer of partsongs. His deep understanding of choral forces brings a unique polish and artistry to the genre, his early style reflecting a deference to his masters Parry and Stanford, and deeply moving post-war masterpieces such as Twilight Night exploiting a more acerbic harmonic vocabulary. E.J. Moeran's inclination towards introspective melancholy blends with his knowledge of Elizabethan madrigal and renaissance dance, resulting in true gems on themes of love such as While she lies sleeping. The cover photo shows the two composer's on the Norfolk Broads.

John Ireland:
A Cradle Song
Weep you no more, sad fountains
Laughing Song
The Peaceful Western Wind
Spring, the Sweet Spring
When May is in His Prime
Cupid
Fain would I change that note
Twilight Night
These Things Shall Be
The Hills
Immortality
They Told Me, Heraclitus
Sea Fever
In Praise of Neptune
E J Moeran:
Songs of Springtime
Blue-eyed Spring
Weep you no more, sad fountains
Phyllida and Corydon

THIS OTHER EDEN: A LANDSCAPE OF ENGLISH POETRY AND SONG 
(Champs Hill CD-CHRCD094)

Kitty Whately, mezzo-soprano
Joseph Middleton, piano
Navarra Quartet
Kevin Whately
Madelaine Newton


Include's Ireland's 'Earth's Call' and 'Spring will not wait'

A beautiful collection of English Poetry and Song performed by mezzo-soprano Kitty Whately and her family and friends.
The pain of longing for home, of true not sentimental nostalgia, deep seated in the art of the British Isles, permeates this album’s exquisite programme of poetry and song, from Shakespeare’s Scepter’d Isle, the ‘blue remembered hills’ of Housman’s Shropshire or Hardy’s Wessex, to the idyllic Ireland of Joseph Campbell’s ‘I wish and I wish’.
Features beautiful texts by poets including Dante Gabriel Rosetti, his sister Christina Rosetti, AE Housman and John Masefield
The stoicism the British are known for flickers in so many of the songs on this album, hope for peace and hope for eternal values of beauty and truth. It stands proud in ‘The fields are full’, one of many fine songs written by Ivor Gurney in the fruitful post-war years following his initial recovery from shellshock, and there too in John Ireland’s ‘Earth’s Call’, 
Kitty Whately, a BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artist for the 2013–15 seasons, was the winner of both the Kathleen Ferrier Award, and the 59th Royal Over-Seas League Award for Singers in 2011 
Pianist Joseph Middleton was described in the BBC Music Magazine as ‘one of the brightest stars in the world of song and Lieder’, he has also be labelled as ‘the cream of the new generation’ by The Times. 
Featuring Kitty’s actor parents, Kevin Whately (Lead roles in Auf Wiedersehen Pet, Inspector Morse, and title role in Lewis) and Madelaine Newton (Theatre and TV actress including leading roles in the hugely successful series When The Boat Comes In, The Spoils of War and Auf Weidersehen Pet)
Award winning Navarra Quartet feature both individually and as a quartet in Samuel Barber’s beautiful Dover Beach.

Irish tune from County Derry, Percy Grainger  

'Ballerina' by John Ireland may sound familiar, but this is in fact the first recording of a piece published only after the recording sessions. It is the early version of Ireland’s 'Columbine' (1951), originally called 'Impromptu', a title its composer disliked. For its recent publication it was renamed 'Ballerina', a working title used by Ireland on one of his sketches for the piece, now held in the British Library. It was originally commissioned in 1949 by the American screenwriter William Rose, as a present for his wife Tania (née Price). Ireland reworked it before its publication as 'Columbine' two years later. Alan Bush, the trenchant British composer who studied with Ireland from 1927 to 1932, used to play this early version and preferred it to the revised 'Columbine', which he described as bowdlerized! After a performance I gave in Milan of Ireland’s Piano Concerto, Bruce Phillips, Director of The John Ireland Charitable Trust, asked me what other Ireland I was performing for the fiftieth anniversary of the composer’s death. I mentioned this recording and the possibility of including the delicious ‘valse lente’ 'Columbine'; it was he who suggested I might consider 'Ballerina' instead. Piers Lane
