Recorded at: The Arts Centre of the London Oratory School, Fulham, London by kind permission of the Headmaster and Bursar, January 4th & 5th 1996
The Belfast-born composer Howard Ferguson has enjoyed an enviable reputation amongst those who really know their British music of the 20th century: his music is not great in output, but is distinguished at all times by a fastidious craftsmanship and an inspired abundance of melody. Dame Myra Hess recorded his Piano Sonata and Bagatelles, and Denis Brain his Octet - all on 78rpm discs - so this outstanding composer has not been without distinguished advocates. His Second Violin Sonata of 1948 is in three cogent movements.
The First Violin Sonata by Eugène Goossens is an outstanding work, the neglect of which - as with all of this supremely-gifted composer’s music - is quite inexplicable. The slow movement was recorded on a 78rpm disc by Andre Mangeot and the composer himself over 70 years ago - this new recording marks the first time this work has appeared complete in the British record catalogues!
The sensational success of the Second Violin Sonata by John Ireland in 1917 - it was performed nine times in the following season - may well have inspired Goossens to write his Sonata. It is surely true to say that no other English chamber work of the 20th century was ever received with greater enthusiasm than this. It remains one of Ireland’s greatest masterpieces, and should be known by all lovers of English music.
