Description: Chandos and Naxos have provided modern recordings of the Sinfonia Concertante and the violin concerto respectively, so this disc is for Rubbra enthusiasts and for collectors of composer-performed pieces (oddly, there is a recording of the Prelude and Fugue on Naxos but it’s played on the organ).
