Composed by Philip Wilby. A superb addition to the concerto repertory. Serious Concert. Full Score. With Standard Notation. Duration 19:00. Winwood Music #0268SC. Published by Winwood Music (WO.0268SC).

At a time when we are being encouraged to survey the recent past, its title aims to catch a flavour of that spirit of optimistic vision which coloured the British psyche at the end of the Second War, at once heroic, elegiac, and confident. The concerto’s three movements are arranged in a circular pattern around a reflective slow movement. At the heart of that movement is a Cadenza, marked to be played off-stage, where the soloist is surrounded and supported by an additional group of fanfare players. By contrast, the outer movements are energetic and brisk, at times heroic, and at times virtuosic.
