John Wilson (conductor)

Recorded: The Colosseum, Town Hall, Watford
16, 18-19 July & 19 September 2007

In his unmissable Eric Coates programme, with the BBC Concert Orchestra on top form, conductor John Wilson demonstrates his special empathy with and long-study of the music of this quintessential British composer, with celebrated baritone Sir Thomas Allen and tenor Richard Edgar-Wilson in Coates's once widely popular orchestral songs. They are coupled with less familiar orchestral music including three catchy marches Sound and Vision, Holborn and The Eighth Army, the Four Ways Suite, the dance interlude Moresque and the Valse from The Three Bears. All are crowned by the first complete recording of the From the Countryside suite, dating from 1915 and already showing Coates's distinctive style in the lilt of its melodies, easy-going charm and rhythmic zest. For Coates lovers this is a collection to refresh and complement your collection; for newcomers it makes the perfect introduction to this tuneful and toe-tapping repertoire.
