Guest Playlist: Gerald Finzi's Complete Works

I've got quite a few emails about this blog recently, and today I received a playlist from a very kind classical listener and Spotify user. It's the complete work of 20th-century British composer: Gerald Finzi. John wrote in his email:

"I was first attracted to him because a friend's daughter was playing the Clarinet Concerto in an amateur concert. This led me on to his other orchestral works, then his songs."

I think that might be a good way to explore Finzi's works. Here's the Spotify playlist: Gerald Finzi (112 tracks, 7.9 hours) Thank you, John:) I'm listening to the Cello Concerto now and it's a great discover, looking forward to see more from you and the others.
