David Ellis is another disgracefully neglected British composer. The Violin Concerto is, as you say, a very fine piece but there are many other works by Ellis which merit revival or indeed first performance. A few of his compositions are available through You Tube and I recorded the Symphony No.1 from a radio broadcast of the first performance back in 1973. Unfortunately I missed the broadcast of the Symphony No.2 (1995). The Symphony No.3 "Images from beyond Infinity" (1998) has never, as far as I know, been performed.
