Description: This nearly duplicates a full-price New Zealand disc we offered two and a half years ago (09O010) with the Phantasy replacing the earlier CD's violin sonata. Written in England for the Cobbett Competition (which it won) in 1939, it's an intensely lyrical 11-minute piece which creates an atmosphere of quiet sorrow. See the previous blurb for more detail but the remaining works inhabit a Vaughan Williams/Bliss sound world with distant echoes of Schubert in the string trio. New Zealand String Quartet.
