The Passionate Englishman
Tanya Prochazka, cello
Janet Scott-Hoyt, piano
The Passionate Englishman, performed by cellist Tanya Prochazka and pianist Janet Scott-Hoyt, is a beautifully and expressively performed collection of works by important English composers of the 20th century.
Works include seminal cello pieces of the 20th century, including Britten’s Sonata in C and Ireland’s Cello Sonata. Walton, Ireland and Elgar also provide music that shows just how passionate and eloquent the cello can be.
