Cellist Alice Neary is the featured soloist in Herbert Howells's Cello Concerto (now in a performing edition by Jonathan Clinch). The work, heard here complete for the first time, is a glorious and expansive score from the mid-1930s and both Neary and the Royal Scottish National Orchestra rise to its pastoral romanticism and bittersweet half-lights with characteristic brio and understanding. In the best Dutton tradition, the album's coupling is conductor Ronald Corp's own Cello Concerto, a work well worth discovering. Howells's two atmospheric encores, Merry Eye and Puck's Minuet, complete this remarkably satisfying program.
