The English composer-conductor Henry Cotter Nixon (1842–1907) has entirely disappeared from music history. But this series – presenting all his surviving orchestral music in its first-ever recordings – reveals him to have been one of the most accomplished English composers of his generation, with a style that takes in elements of Mendelssohn, Schumann, Verdi and Brahms. This second volume confirms his ability to handle extended symphonic structures and also presents a Sullivanesque lighter side.

Ian Hobson, piano(Tracks 2 – 5)
Kodály Philharmonic Orchestra
Ferenc Nagy, euphonium (Track 1)
Paul Mann, conductor
