The major work here is the ‘Cello Sonata, an extended elegiac composition, emotionally charged, making full and fine use of the cello’s expressive capabilities. This may be one of the finest ‘cello sonatas to come out of the British Isles this century. The two solo piano works are in the best tradition of modern romanticism – both highly evocative sea pieces, owing something perhaps, to late Frank Bridge.
