Jacob Piano Concerto No 1

The reviewer of the recent recording on the Somm label of this work refers to a broadcast performance from 1958 which appears on YouTube. Your reviewer quotes that it was played by Iris Loveridge - this is stated on the YouTube video but it is incorrect and I tried a few years ago to point this out. The broadcast performance that I actually recorded at the time was played by Peter Wallfisch and this is the version on YouTube. The concerto was dedicated to Arthur Benjamin who premiered the work in 1927. Iris Loveridge would have been about 10 years old in 1927! I hope this sets the record straight.
