The first release from new label EM Records contains two world premiere
recordings together with an unjustly neglected work. The Violin Sonatas by
Arthur Bliss and Henry Walford Davies have languished in manuscript form
for over 100 years, and were performed at the 2010 English Music Festival
to an enthralled audience by regular EMF artists Rupert Luck and Matthew
Rickard. The works are presented here alongside York Bowen s opulent and
darkly turbulent Violin Sonata. EM Records is delighted to present these
passionate and heartfelt Sonatas as its first release.
