After listening to the Overture, Elegy, and Rondo, I was once more reminded how this talented and prolific composer has never gotten his due on this side of the Atlantic. His works are virtually never programmed by major American orchestras (at least that I know of). But I was truly shocked when I read in the liner notes that this piece had only been performed ONCE prior to this recording! It is a real delight and ought to be known to a wider audience. Certainly those who are already fans of this composer will be pleased at this mature sounding and interesting work written fairly early in the composer's career. Melodic, complex and arresting use of harmony, and a thrilling ending---all the elements that make a listener remember a piece of music and come back to it. I felt like I'd come across a real lost gem here. Those unfamiliar with Bax will discover why his works have become increasingly popular among classical music buffs; those who are already fans ought to enjoy this immensely.

These are quite splendid recordings of two works by English composer Arnold Bax that are rarely heard in the concert hall. They were recorded by Naxos in 1987 and are played by the Slovak Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Barry Wordsworth. Bax is probably best known for his symphonic tone poems. His seven symphonies from the 1920s and 1930s are less often played, which is a shame because this is open and accessible music, essentially up-beat and rarely melancholic. The Sinfonietta from 1932 and the accompanying piece - the Overture, Elegy and Rondo of 1927 - represent works of greater working out than the tone poems, but not as demanding to listen to as the longer symphonies composed over the same period. This digital recording and the playing of the Slovak Philharmonic do full justice to the music with some particularly lovely brass playing.
