Ralph Vaughan Williams: Fat Knight/Serenade to Music/Henry V Overture

[SACD Hybrid Multi-channel]

Vaughan Williams never completed in full score his seven-movement suite from the opera Sir John in Love, which had as its central character Shakespeare’s Falstaff. He left it in two-piano score with the opera’s working title Fat Knight, and it has become, in effect, a set of instructions for realising the orchestral suite Martin Yates has produced, incorporating the orchestration from the completed opera. The Henry V Overture, until now only known in the original version for band, is recorded in Martin Yates’s idiomatic orchestration, reminding us that Vaughan Williams produced a vivid evocation of the world of Shakespeare’s play that anticipated Walton’s more familiar film music of a decade later. Completing the programme is the orchestral version of the Serenade to Music, composed for Sir Henry Wood’s Jubilee and brilliantly played here by the Royal Scottish National Orchestra.

“Martin Yates’s sparkling orchestration” “Yates secures some commendably alert playing from the RSNO, who seem to be thoroughly enjoying the whole experience” “Dutton’s multi-channel production, whose glowingly realistic sound emanates from the acoustically kind surroundings of Dundee’s Caird Hall.” Andrew Achenbach, Gramophone, June 2016
