Corinne Morris & SCO - Chrysalis - The Herald


28 October 2017
The Herald

Mentored by Mtislav Rostopovich and Paul Tortelier, cellist Corinne Morris had her career ahead of her when she was forced to stop playing by a shoulder injury that was a result of playing too much. Rather than choose another track in life, she sought out specialist help from the sports injury field and this disc with the Scottish Chamber Orchestra is the second of her comeback, and her debut with core concerto repertoire.

Boldly, she places the G Minor concerto by 18th century Viennese composer Georg Matthias Monn at its heart, because that work is one indelibly associated with Jacqueline Du Pre, whose performance with Barbirolli and the LSO rediscovered it for the 20th. On either side of it sit Couperin’s Pieces en Concert, as arranged by French cellist Paul Baselaire, and Haydn’s glorious Cello Concerto No.1 in C – altogether an hour’s worth of Baroque quality.
