Description: At budget-price, you can buy this just for the 20th century concertos on the first disc by the Englishman Lovelock (from 1968, 12 years after he moved to Australia, and with some lovely moments of English pastoralism leavening the bright virtuosity of the rest), the Australian Mills (1982, extremely approachable and colorfully orchestrated). 2 CDs. Geoffrey Payne (trumpet), Melbourne Symphony Orchestra; John Hopkins, Michael Halász.
