It was in 1947 that Doreen Carwithenís career took off. Her Masefield-inspired overture ODTAA (One Damn Thing After Another) was premiered by Sir Adrian Boult. This meaty, confident and muscular work suggests the influence of Moeran, and relates readily to the film music that formed a substantial part of her output. The other overture, Bishop Rock, was inspired by the rock in the Atlantic that marks the western-most point of mainland Britain; the music is stormy in places, gently sinister in others. The charming Suffolk Suite uses melodies originally written for a film on East Anglia. The Concerto for Piano and Strings is a most ambitious work, with powerful virtuoso writing for the piano set against rich-textured strings. A deeply melancholy slow movement, in which the piano is joined by a solo violin, leads to a strong finale which in places echoes Irelandís Piano Concerto. Howard Shelley is the persuasive soloist, with Richard Hickox and the LSO equally convincing in their advocacy of all four works.

Shelley, Hickox and the LSO put not a foot wrong.
