WORLD PREMIERE RECORDING [Richard II: incidental music]

Multi-ch Stereo
All tracks available in stereo and multi-channel

This hybrid CD can be played on any standard CD players

Dutton Epoch is thrilled to present celebrated baritone Roderick Williams in the complete orchestral version of Vaughan Williams’s Songs of Travel. Recorded at the Caird Hall, Dundee, in one remarkable session, everyone present was gripped by the music’s eloquence and impact. Written between the Fifth and Sixth Symphonies, Vaughan Williams’s incidental music for a BBC wartime production of Shakespeare’s Richard II was delivered by the composer in 1944, but went unheard when the production was aborted. This world premiere recording of RVW’s score reveals the composer at the peak of his powers. The Fantasia on Sussex Folk Tunes for cello and orchestra was written for Pablo Casals, and here, in cellist Nadège Rochat’s singing performance, the tunes appear as a succession of musical jewels. The short Suite de Ballet for flute and piano can now be heard in composer Roger Steptoe’s idiomatic 1989 orchestration for flute and strings. Flautist Anna Noakes projects the flute line with fine tone and the strings of the RSNO provide a sumptuous context.

“... on this fascinating compendium, Nadège Rochet makes the best possible case for the Fantasia on Sussex Folk Times ... Yates's support is as bright as a button both here and for flautist Anna Noakes in miniature Suite de Ballet” “baritone Roderick Williams is on exceptionally eloquant form in the Songs of Travel.” "Again, Yates and the RSNO are at the topof their game throughout, making this an absolute delight from start to finish." "...SACD recording is outstandingly vivid and realistic ... testament to the skills of the experienced team of producer Michael Ponder and engineer Dexter Newman" "Strongly recommened." Andrew Achenbach, Gramophone, August 2019
