Disc No: CDLX 7277 Dutton Epoch’s pioneering Holbrooke series reaches its third volume, which couples Amy Dickson in the Saxophone Concerto – the first British concerto for the instrument – with the extended ballet Aucassin and Nicolette, the latter forgotten since its run at Golders Green Hippodrome before the War. In both these sunny scores we forget the grim, operatic Holbrooke evoking dark Celtic legends and revel in this tuneful music reminding us that Holbrooke enjoyed considerable success as a composer of light music. Anton Dolin recalled that Holbrooke’s ballet long-remained one of the most popular items in the repertoire of the Markova-Dolin Company: “It was a simple love story, delicately expressed and enchantingly staged.”
