Gerald Finzi is best known for his Clarinet Concerto, Five Bagatelles and his choral works. But there's more to discover about this British composer.
In 1951, Finzi learned that he was suffering from the then incurable Hodgkin's disease and had at most ten years to live. Something of his feelings after this revelation is probably reflected in the agonized first movement of the deeply moving Cello Concerto (1955), his last major work.
