HOLBROOKE, J.: Violin Concerto, "The Grasshopper" / Violin Sonata No. 1 / Horn Trio (Peacock, Stevenson, M. Smith)

Holbrooke is a fascinating and important figure in British music. His Violin Sonata No. 1—also called a Sonatina—is a bright, engaging and light-hearted work that owes something to his interest in popular song. His Violin Concerto, subtitled ‘The Grasshopper’, was published in full score and in two versions for violin and piano—including a ‘sonata’ version with a somewhat technically less demanding final movement. In this recording we present the original ‘concerto’ version. This beautiful work, admired by the great critic Ernest Newman, is full of lyrical freedom, and also some coruscating technical demands. The Horn Trio took Brahms’s similar trio as a precedent, and is a work of great dignity and melodic appeal.


Holbrooke, Joseph
