Maurice Gendron, cello; Christian Ivaldi, piano; Paris, 1967.

One Response to “1916”

    It was the composer and BBC producer Robert Simpson who had the wonderful idea, in the ’70s, I suppose, for the radio programme called The Innocent Ear, where the composer was not named.

    The last movement here has affinities with the second of that other great cello work produced by the Great War, though written just after it, the Elgar concerto.
