"I find Lane much more jazzily incisive than (any rivals). He catches better the wit and spikiness of this often over-whimsified concerto. David Lloyd-Jones is equally lively in the orchestral portion of these scores…(a) welcome release."(BBC Music Magazine)

"For dedicated Delians, this is an irresistible chance to hear and study Delius's original version of his Piano Concerto but on the evidence here, the decision to revise it, I think, was wise. The John Ireland Concerto and Legend performances can be confidently recommended."
(MusicWeb Jan 2006)

This major new recording presents, for the first time, the original three movement version of Delius's piano concerto. Until now we have always heard the radical revision, made with the 'help' of pianist Theodor Szántó; many will find this original version, which contains a complete movement of previously unheard material, more convincingly Delian.

Also on this disc are John Ireland's two works for piano and orchestra, the Piano Concerto of 1930 and the Legend
