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.

Review By Colin Anderson,Classicalsource.com,January 2014

Whether in Buffalo, Ulster or Virginia, her permanent centres of excellence, JoAnn Falletta has been enterprising in choosing a wide range of interesting repertoire. With the Ulster Orchestra…they first came together in terms of recording with a Naxos disc of Gustav Holst’s music…Now, here is an equally impressive release of pieces by Ernest John Moeran.

The performances are splendid in their appreciation and affection for Moeran’s music and the recording is excellent. Well worth a punt! © 2014 Classicalsource.com Read complete review



Review By Chris Bye,The British Music Society,May 2013

In this very welcome release Guy Johnston (cellist) and the well-disciplined Ulster players prove to be great Moeran ambassadors by giving a convincing delivery of one of the composer’s most important achievements. ...this new accomplished release boasts excellent cello playing with slickly articulated orchestral backing. It also bears the distinctive advantage of crisp up-to-the-minute technology (the impactful recording was made at Ulster Hall, Belfast, 2012).

Review By Norman Lebrecht,La Scena Musicale,April 2013

Ernest Moeran’s post-war concerto of 1945 is reminiscent all too frequently of Elgar’s, replacing its emotional wrench with gentle nostalgia. Guy Johnston gives a lovely, lyrical account. The Ulster Orchestra append Moeran’s Merrie England Serenade in G. © 2013  La Scena Musicale
