With his distinctive blend of incisive drama and lyrical expressiveness, Sir William Walton was one of the greatest English composers of the 20th century. He and his wife Susana made their home on the Italian island of Ischia where he composed the Cello Concerto - a work he considered to be the best of his three concertos for string instruments - heard here for the first time in a stunning transcription for viola by Anna Serova. The Italian composer Roberto Molinelli pays homage to Susana's Argentine roots and the beautiful garden she created, La Mortella, with his concerto Lady Walton's Garden, displaying a colourful use of South American and Neapolitan instruments. William's Rock and The Missing E are also dedicated to La Mortella.
