This my first hearing of this particular work by Finzi and it is very attractive music and for this listener marks him, Finzi, as a worthy successor to Vaughn-Williams. And with such committed performances makes this Naxos album an unusual and welcomed bargain in today's market. I will be looking for more Finzi in the future.
A delight on a budget!
Beautiful performances of works of this composer, who truly deserves much more appreciation. Full of romance and sensitivity. The Eclogue is a marvel , truly inspiring of sheperds and meadows.. The cello concerto is unmistakingly a Finzi, and a worthy performance. A welcome addition to my collection of Finzi's works!.
