MOERAN, E.J.: Cello Concerto / Serenade / Lonely Waters / Whythorne's Shadow (Johnston, Ulster Orchestra, Falletta)

The Cello Concerto is one of Anglo-Irish composer EJ Moeran’s most important works. Composed in 1945, its deft scoring and memorable melodic material mark it as a work of his maturity. At its heart is the raptly lyrical and profoundly felt slow movement but the whole concerto reflects the singing qualities of the solo instrument. The much-admired Serenade is heard in the 1996 edition of the original 1948 version with eight movements. Lonely Waters is a brief but evocative orchestral rhapsody, and Whythorne’s Shadow a touching fantasy based on an Elizabethan madrigal.
