Dyson writes music that's simple on the surface but contains plenty of emotion and thought. It grows on repeated hearings and above all, it's sincere, heartfelt stuff. Tuneful without being glib, beautifully orchestrated. The Violin Concerto is a particularly spellbinding piece, more a symphony for violin than traditional concerto. Mordkovitch is its ideal interpreter, a player not afraid to let it all hang out. The other pieces are far from insubstantial. Even the Children's Suite is more than a potboiler.
Excellent recording and playing, although better-sprung rhythms might have benefitted some of the faster sections.

I am English and love exploring the little known English composers. Dyson is one of them. His music is lovely and when I first listened to this cd I realized I was already familiar with some of the music through listening to the wireless in England.
