When she isn't exploring the intersection between jazz, tropicalia, and indie pop with the Bird and the Bee, vocalist Inara George enjoys a solo career as a talented singer/songwriter. At a young age, she was surrounded by the music of her father (Little Feat's Lowell George) and his illustrious peers – Jackson Browne, Terry Allen, and Van Dyke Parks – yet George never intended to follow in her late father's footsteps.

Naxos has done music lovers yet another good turn by releasing these recordings (1932-36), vividly remasterd from 78s. Menuhin was in his later teens when he made them. The concertos in A minor and E are conducted by his teacher Enescu, who is the other soloist in the D minor Double concerto, which Monteux conducts. The performances are compelling, and the slow movements of the solo concertos are imprinted with that beauty of tone and phrase that makes the young Menuhin a permanent wonder. But the Double Concerto is the treasure. The soloists are indistinguishably linked yet each a consummate individual. Playing more heart-easing than in the distraught largo could not be imagined.

George Dyson (1883-1964) studied with Charles Villiers Stanford at the Royal College of Music and Dyson's own compositions tend to reflect the kind of romanticism of both Stanford and Perry or the era just before Elgar, Vaughan Williams, and William Walton. His music is always lyrical if a bit modest,or perhaps understated is a better word after all, leggiero means "lack of pomp or pretention or prolixity." In this, he resembles Frederick Delius. The works on this disc come from Dyson's later years 1949 to 1951 which were his most creative.
