  • Cross Section of Neglected Composer Oct 22, 2009
    by ihs1

    Ferguson was a friend and supporter of Gerald Finzi and did much to promote Finzi's work, which has a clear affinity with his own. If you respond to Finzi, you will like Ferguson as well. Since discovering him earlier this year, I have been systematically collecting every recording of his work--as I did with Finzi, when I first stumble across the lovely "Dies Natalis" more than twenty-five years ago. Happily both of these fine composers are now better represented in the catalogue than they were back then.

    Since these are in most instances the only recordings of these pieces, there is little to choose from. But the performances strike me as very fine and thoroughly idiomatic.

    Highly recommended.
