Editorial Reviews

Works for violin and piano are an important part of Cyril Scott' chamber music. This disc presents three sonatas which span his output. The capricious and ruminative First Violin Sonata ranks among the most convincing and successful of his earlier larg

Dr. Price, whose review is previous to mine, seems to know Cyril Scott's music better than I, but based upon what I have heard of it, I would concur that this CD is a good place to start for listeners who think they might find Scott's music to their liking. (I've listened to several of the solo piano music volumes on Dutton, and to the piano concertos on Lyrita, and the Lyrita release would be another good place to go. The solo piano music seemed inconsistent, and did not, to me, compel repeated listenings. This Naxos CD found its way to my player several times in a few days, in contrast.)

To whom would this music appeal? The notes to this issue mention Debussy and Scriabin as influences, and those names indeed popped into my head frequently when listening. Syzmanowski also comes to mind. Scott does not have the melodic gift of any of those, but he effectively creates an atmoshere of what one might call "mystic impressionism" with an Eastern tinge. (And Scott was certainly drawn to Eastern mysticism, as he was to homeopathy and osteopathy, as mentioned in the notes.) Even though the works on this CD come from early and late in Scott's career, I hear a close resemblance in harmonic profile.

Sometimes I listen to music with no distractions, but often I listen while I read a book, and sometimes on Sunday afternoons, I may lounge on the couch, half snoozing and half watching the birds at the feeder in the yard while a CD plays in the background. At times like that, I like listening to something that does not insist upon my undivided attention but instead insinuates itelf into my consciousness, the sort of music I can lose myself into if I want to, or just let wash over me.
