Cellist Alice Neary's championship of Herbert Howells' three-movement Cello Concerto (now in a performing edition by Jonathan Clinch) and conductor Ronald Corp's own recent Cello Concerto make for a rewarding coupling in the best Dutton Epoch tradition. The Howells, now heard complete for the first time, is a glorious and expansive score from the mid-1930s and the RSNO and Alice Neary rise to its pastoral romanticism and bittersweet half-lights with characteristic brio and understanding. Howells' two atmospheric encores, Merry Eye and Puck's Minuet, complete a fully satisfying programme.
