John Ireland's Cello Sonata in G minor was written in 1923 and premiered the following year on April 4th by the Cellist Beatrice Harrison wit pianist Evlyn Howard-Jones at teh Aeolian Hall, London. The composer himself performed the Sonata many times as pianist with several cellists including Antoni Sala, who prnounced it ''the best cello sonata of modern times'', and recorded it with Ireland on the Columbia label in October, 1928. Frederick Delius' four violin and piano sonatas were written between 1892 and 1930 and so chart comprehensively his creative development. Violin Sonata No. 3 forms a part of the remarkable Indian summer of composition made possible by the blind and paralyzed composer's collaboration with Eric Fenby. Lionel Handy arranged the Sonata for cello and piano in 2012 and on November 23 of that year he gave the first public performance of his transcription with Nigel Clayton as pianist at a concert held in The Warehouse, London to celebrate the 150th anniversary of Delius's birth. Arnold Bax is widely regarded as an orchestral composer. However, he also wrote a significant quantity of chamber music. One of his most impressive works for the instrument, the Cello Sonata in E flat was writte in 1923 at a time when his popularity and standing aong British composers was at its height. Completed on November 7 of that year, the Sonata was premiered on February 26, 1924 at the Wigmore Hall with Harriet Cohen accompanying Beatrice Harrison, to whom the score was originally dedicated.
