I'm a little surprised no one has reviewed this particular set of music by Stanford. This 2-CD set collects together all the various Irish Rhapsodies that were originally issued as accompaniments to Vernon Handley's separate recordings of the Stanford symphonies on Chandos. Those of you who have the symphonies probably don't need this set; those of you who have none (or very few) will find this set particularly appealing. The rhapsodies are linked...sentimentally if not exactly musically, as the title suggest. All 6 really are "of a piece," and the Gramophone guide has observed that they make a pretty cohesive set. I'd agree.

Oh, and by the way, did I mention the music is really enjoyable, spirited, and extremely well put together? I barreled through both 70 minute CDs all in one weekend.

Now, you can spend a lot of time telling yourself "oh, Stanford really sounds like....______(insert your favorite 19th century romantic composer from the continent.) And, yes, he does, to a certain extent; there ARE resemblances and a few homages. But Stanford was his own man, clearly, and his individuality is pretty evident.

(I didn't expect to) but I particularly enjoyed the piano concerto #2, which also is included as part of the package. No shrinking violet, this one; a full-fledged work brimming with ideas and panache. (Again) will you discern a vague similarity to certain other works from the continent? yes. Will it bother you? I doubt it. It has more than enough originality to keep it going. And (unlike perhaps the recently much-ballyhooed concerti of York Bowen) this Stanford concerto isn't just a flashy virtuoso showpiece for manual dexterity. It has real heft.

This was well worth the price paid on Amazon marketplace. recommended.

I originally purchased a single recording of Symphony No 6 after hearing a library copy of this recording on this recording was the Irish Rhapsody No 1. So when I purchased the full set of symphonies the Irish Rhapsodies were not included so I got these on this full set. The Chandos recording is superb with a full rich Orchestral sound stage and Magnificent Brass. The music really grows on you the more you listen to it. Stanford is a great romantic composer with an English flavour.
