Rien que pour le magnifique second morceau du concerto," Adagio - sostenuto", le disque en vaut la peine ! une beauté magique et mystérieuse se dégage de l'inspiration divine de Scott.
Ensuite, envolée légère et profondeur se succèdent.

HASH(0xa0bf8114) étoiles sur 5 The very best of Cyril Scott, perfectly played 7 juin 2006
Par Dr. Richard M. Price - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
Almost forty years ago the New Oxford History of Music described Bax and Cyril Scott as the two English composers of their generation most in need of reassessment. Since then we have seen a flood of superlative Bax recordings, and for four years now (2008) it has been Scott's turn, with impressive recordings of piano music and chamber works on the Dutton label, and four CDs of his orchestral music from Chandos, with Martyns Brabbins and the BBC Philharmonic, of which this one, containing the two most attractive of Scott's concertos and the best of his symphonies, is the summit and crown.
The First Piano Concerto of 1914 was the highwater mark of Scott's early maturity, and has been the most often revived of his major works. It has his most magical slow movement, and outer movements that are vigorous, memorable, with brilliant piano writing (that is actually quite easy to play), and shamelessly sugary orchestration. The touch of vulgarity in harmony and instrumentation is welcome; Scott's taste became more refined thereafter, with more loss than gain. An impressive LP recording of this work with Ogdon, Bernard Herrmann and the LPO was issued by Lyrita thirty years ago. The LPO was superior to the BBC Philharmonic, particularly in the woodwind section, and the Lyrita recording was in a class of its own, but this new performance is just as affectionate and assured, and has the advantage of notably quicker tempi in the outer movements, where Ogdon's performance was self-indulgent and lost momentum.
'Early One Morning' is a short tone poem for piano and orchestra (1931). The Lyrita recording was quite magical, and this new one is just as good, with exquisitely sensitive phrasing. The work is slight in substance, but it sustains its rapt atmosphere most beautifully, and the orchestration is subtler than in the concerto.
Up till the Second World War Scott's music had a distinctive personality (exotic, energetic, detached) but an idiom that was manifestly derived from Ravel and Grainger. In his old age, however, Scott created his own highly idiosyncratic language, marked by wayward melodies and a complex harmony, based on fourths and sevenths but with many added notes, in which every chord is an individual creation. Of this fascinating late style the Fourth Symphony of 1952 is an impressive example: one misses the lightness and charm of some of his other works of this period (such as the Flute Sonata) but the musical argument is coherent and symphonic seriousness is sustained -- much more so than in the suite-like Third Symphony included in the first of the Chandos issues.
In all, this CD is unsurpassable as an introduction to Scott's music for larger forces, and contains in the Piano Concerto the most irresistible of all his works.

Par minacciosa - Publié sur Amazon.com

The review before neatly encapsulates the qualities of the 1st Piano Concerto. It IS thrilling. I found it easy to imagine the wonder that greeted the work at its first performance, as it really does inhabit another world of sound. It's a work that is sui generis. To his credit, Scott continued to grow and develop his compositional voice, which became even more personal and recognizable, if perhaps a bit less direct. It matters not, for once you're acclimated to his unique harmonic palette, nothing will seem strange.

Early One Morning is a gem, and the most identifiably English work on the cd. The famous tune is here refracted rather than simply stated, cloaked in a similar idiom as the Piano Concerto. It's not quite a series of variations, more like a meditation on the meaning of the folksong's words, using the aspects of the tune as illumination. Trust me, you will smell the air and feel the wistfulness. Did I say this is soooo English? I just love it!

The Symphony is line with Scott's somewhat more recondite mature style, which is to say that pure cadences and triadic progressions are not always clear. By no means is it atonal, but it is an interesting and original way of using tonality to reflect both traditional roots and a modern outlook. The symphony may not ever be an audience favorite but it is very rewarding listening for those who don't need music to be quite so obvious.

The performances are all stellar, and this is all great stuff. Get it.

Cyril Scott's music inhabits a sound-world that is very much its own, despite the inevitable comparisons to composers such as Scriabin, Sorabji, and even the French impressionists. This new recording of the First Piano Concerto -- the first one in over 30 years -- takes a fresher, lighter approach that is absolutely thrilling in the outer movements. Messrs. Shelley and Brabbins really blow the cobwebs off this music, in stark constrast to the slow, overly heavy, even pompous Ogdon/Herrmann reading on Lyrita (just re-released on CD). That earlier recording gets fair dues if only because the producers were brave enough to record and release it back in the 1970s when it was surely out of fashion ... but this newer reading is truly revelatory. The Symphony is a world premiere -- and very welcome. The filler work "Early One Morning" isn't particularly memorable -- just as it wasn't in the earlier Ogdon recording on Lyrita.

HASH(0xa0bf8588) étoiles sur 5 Excellent performances of music that is sometimes just too overblown 9 novembre 2010
Par G.D. - Publié sur Amazon.com

Cyril Scott is one of a fair number of British composers who have undergone a revival the last decade. His music certainly has a distinctive sound, heavily chromatic and perfumed and strongly influenced by impressionism - if you imagine a mixture of Debussy, Ravel and Bax you get somewhere in the vicinity (throw in a touch of Sorabji and early Szymanowski). It relies heavily on texture; lush, lavish and full of glissandi, high on late-romantic decadence though relatively short on melody. It is also short on drama, and the compositional range is relatively limited, so while the music is often gorgeous, it is also a little overwhelming, static, formless, diffuse and unvaried. In that sense, it is perhaps not for everyone, but I recommend everyone with a penchant for impressionism and post-impressionism to give it a try.

The first piano concerto is a case in point, though a rather successful example. Full of colors and dreamy, luminescent and opulent textures, it is a constantly fascinating if rambling score - there is nothing in the whole thing that could really be characterized as a theme, yet it manages to keep one's attention. It helps that the performances are as good as they are; Shelley's piano playing displays a remarkable range of color and spirit and almost manages to find a structure in this abstract watercolor painting. The BBC Philharmonic under Martyn Brabbins play well in the sense that they provide the necessary color, atmosphere and lavish textures; the aimlessness and apparent uncertainty about the direction of the work must be blamed on the composer, I think.

The fourth symphony is even more formally elusive, probably simply due to the absence of a soloist who can assume control of proceedings. The color, detail and wonderful textures are all there, of course, but even more than in the third symphony the music is completely aimless and diffuse. Of course, one could lean back and just relish the colors and textures, but at almost thirty minutes the total absence of a theme or anything resembling forward momentum becomes a little too much. Things work better in Early One Morning for piano and orchestra, not only because the soloist is helpful, but also because there is actually traces of a thematic material and development here. In short, this is music that is far over the top in so many ways; over-perfumed, over-decorated, overrich and - unfortunately - sometimes overlong.

Now, I do not want to sound too harsh; Scott is a composer more than worth investigating if you have a penchant for impressionist or post-impressionist music, and the performances here are generally excellent (it is recorded at a too low level, however, even if the recording is clear and warm). I recommend newcomers to start with the disc containing the third symphony, but this is really - despite reservations - an eminently recommendable recording.

We received the CD in Idaho in about 10 days from the UK. The CD was as expected and plays beautifully.
