"New" Weekend Works

1 post in this topic

Here are links to two works by the Irish Composer, Sir Charles Villiers Stanford.

The first is a YouTube playlist consisting of a complete performance of Stanford's Piano Concerto No. 1 in G Minor (Op. 59) . I had linked to a performance of the composer's Symphony No. 6 several weeks ago. Like that work, this first concerto (the composer wrote three) is not necessarily musically groundbreaking. Nonetheless, I find it to be a delightful work, perfect for quiet, week-end listening.

Sir Charles Villiers Stanford: Piano Concerto No. 1 in G Minor (Op. 59, @1895)

The second link it to a beautiful short piece for mixed choir called The Bluebird.
