This is a wonderful collection of works by 5 Irish classical composers. It's a beautiful mix of reflective, spiritual (in that brooding Irish sort of way), and uplifting (think Irish jigs) music that a favorite in my music library. I'm glad I got it when I did because it seems hard to find. A pity, because it deserves wide distribution. It's so very Irish in a wonderfully melodic way! I love it!!!

THis is an excellent musical collection to own. If only it was easily found at a decent price. Direct seems to be the only option, and even that seems to be a little complicated. So someone, make this cd more easily available and we'll buy it!!!
Great cd!

Apart from Stanford, Harty and Marco Polo's series of contemporary composers, Irish classical music is not particularly well served on disc. A new disc of orchestral music by Aloys Fleischmann should remedy the situation somewhat (I have not got around to hearing it yet); the disc at hand does perhaps look like a sampler, but potential listeners should be warned: what we get is a very light program of strongly folk-inspired snippets - it's all pleasant and charming, jumping between the achingly sentimental and catchy dance numbers, but there is no trace of profundity or anything but picture postcard impressions. Not that this is necessarily a bad thing; it is worth pointing out, however.

Thomas Kelly (1917-1985) is probably best known as an arranger of folk music. The three pieces for strings are tuneful and attractive, and the Reel is actually quite fascinating; the O'Carolan Suite for violin and strings is pretty slight on the other hand, although it does make the time pass. Arthur Duff contributes a hugely appealing Suite - perhaps the most immediately attractive work on the disc - that certainly deserves an occasional listen. If John Larchet's two pieces are a little bit on the meandering side (despite their relative brevity), there is spirit and charm enough to keep one's attention. Fleischmann's Elizabeth McDermott Roe is a more substantial affair; it is wistfully evocative but contains some more troubled aspects and is a rather fine work. Joan Trimble's Suite is also a tad more personal in style than most of the others; essentially romantic but with a touch of astringency that suggests some awareness of more modern trends.

This is a very engaging and appealing album of what amounts to modern Irish string music, and I don't think it's too off the mark to say that it sounds very much like its cousin, English string music. Indeed, the album's first track, Arthur Duff's Meath Pastoral, is reminiscent of the likes of Peter Warlock. After that, however, a decided Irish flavor comes to the fore in pieces that are as wonderfully crafted as Duff's, including that composer's Irish Suite. Also included is Thomas C. Kelly's O'Carolan Suite, which recycles tunes such as Fanny Power and O'Carolan's Concerto to nice effect. As another reviewer noted, it's a shame this release is apparently no longer in print. It should be.
