Farrar: Orchestral Works

"...'Heroic Elegy' is not the only work on this superbly performed pioneering disc to show that Farrar, fine technician as he was by the age of 30, also commanded a range of deep feelings. 'The Forsaken Merman', a finely sustained, half-hour-long symphonic poem, can be both rugged and nobly desolate..." --BC Music, 3/98 - Performance: 5 (out of 5), Sound: 5 (out of 5)

"Reclaiming forgotten but worthy music from the sinkhole of oblivion is always a commendable endeavor, and this Chandos a superior example....anyone with an interest in British music of this century will have to investigate this disc." --Fanfare
