I certainly enjoyed studying his Variations op. 31 for piano in my university days, though I haven't refreshed my memory for a long while. My piano professor at Edinburgh, Colin Kingsley, knew Fricker personally, had studied several of his works with him and later, when Fricker's reputation was declining, commissioned a further piano work from him. He should have been invited to set all this music down on record - Kingsley's only record was some White sonatas on Lyrita as far as I know - but of course wasn't. He did record much (all?) of Fricker's solo piano music for BBC Scotland so maybe these performances survive somewhere.
