Herbert Howells wrote his First Piano Concerto in 1913 while studying composition at the Royal College Of Music. This was his first orchestral work and was later renumbered as Op.4. Edited and completed by John Rutter. Duration: 39 minutes.
This is an amazing work that has seemed to be forgotten about. John Rutter has to be congratulated for completing the work. Howells is a seriously underrated composer that needs recognition. The concerto is as fine as some of the more well-known ones: Rachmaninov and Brahms.
