The Gipps is the stand-out work on this disc - the Bright is interesting and well crafted but not amazing.  Also, although the Gipps is NOT a premiere recording this version is infinitely better than the earlier performance on Cameo Classics which suffers from a sub-fusc orchestra and so so recording - although the actual solo piano playing is good.

It is worth pointing out that there is a Gipps premiere recording here in the shape of the 8 minute orchestral piece Ambarvalia, though you wouldn't know it from the front cover.
