Experience Classicsonline


Although this set is titled Sir Thomas Beecham - English Music it pretty much boils down to Beecham’s Delius plus one disc of music by other English composers. It’s one of a Beecham series issued by EMI Classics in 2011 - marking fifty years since Beecham’s death. The others are:-
 
Sir Thomas Beecham conducts French Music (6 CD set 9099322)
Sir Thomas Beecham: The Classical Tradition Mozart/Haydn (10 CD set 9099462)
Sir Thomas Beecham: The Great Communicator (4 CD set 9099642)
Sir Thomas Beecham: The Later Tradition (8 CD set 9186112)
 
Beecham’s Delius for many years effectively slammed the door on Delius forays by other conductors. It may have done some disservice to the propagation of Delius’s music placing too much fame on the shoulders of one man - not that the testimonials were not merited. Few composers’ reputations have been so exclusively harnessed to one conductor. When Beecham died in 1961 his Delius recordings lived on and continuing their spell also served to discourage others. Oh, there are exceptions in the shape, for instance, of Barbirolli, Sargent and Ormandy but nothing of a similar scale or depth. Many of the Beecham-Delius discs inhabited the catalogue for years - in fact often without a moment’s absence and continuing to hold premium price.
 
Of the present discs only CDs 1 and 2 are in stereo and many of the recordings there fall into the category of ubiquitous presence - almost as immanent as the Barbirolli/Baker/Dupré Elgar Sea Pictures-Cello Concerto LP. CDs 3-5 represent the Delius EMI mono years. The original recordings made in 1946-52 had only a fleeting presence in the catalogue and the same goes for the CD reissues. A Village Romeo and Juliet, the Pougnet Violin Concerto and the 1946 Song of the High Hills had brief moments in the sun both as LPs and as CD reissues. The Over the Hills, Marche Caprice, and last three movements of the Florida Suite and Songs of Sunset have been newly re-mastered this year for this box.  

Many of the Delius recordings here - especially the stereo ones on CDs 1 and 2 - are very well known and need little comment. Sleigh Ride and Florida Suite are as magical, as beguiling and as swooningly catchy as ever. Brigg Fair is superbly tracked into 23 segments for those who want to study the score or recording or bathe in the Beecham heat close-up and repeatedly or to immerse in favourite episodes. The shimmer and grateful song of the Florida Suite finale (At Night)is remarkably Tchaikovskian as is the Marche Caprice. The Dance Rhapsody No. 2 is captured in lovely stereo and accommodates an acres-wide dynamic range - very satisfying. The pacing of On Hearing the First Cuckoo and the heat-haze evoked are magically well pitched. The same goes for the caramel halo around the singing of the Beecham Choral Society in Songs of Sunset. I have no complaints about them or about John Cameron but Maureen Forester is excessively plumy. She also seems ill at ease with the way the Dowson words lie across Delius’s music. Overall though this is glorious music-making.
 
The five movements of Dance Rhapsody No. 1 include some trippingly spun oboe invention - pure distilled Beecham magic. David McCallum’s solo violin lords it over the orchestra in the molto adagio finale. This ushers us nicely into Pougnet’s reading of the Violin Concerto. Pougnet is not temperamentally well suited to this poetically instinctive music. Compare his reading with the Sammons (Naxos) and Ralph Holmes (Unicorn DKPCD9040 - past time that Fenby series was licensed to Alto); not to mention that by Tasmin Little. There are certainly more romantic approaches. Things go more naturally with the urgent ebb and ecstatic flow of The Song of the High Hills - among my favourite Delius works. That’s even more so in this magnificent version. The violins are specially attentive and swooning in The wide far distance section with the choir melting imperceptibly into focus and out. Great Delius playing. Paa Vidderne is more obvious and less refined. It has a tendency towards bombast in the Strauss way though it does have its moments and some of them are heatedly Tchaikovskian. This rare piece with other Norwegian Delius pieces can be heard in modern sound on ClassicO (review review review).
 
A Village Romeo and Juliet is Delius’s most famous and successful opera - a new production is due in November 2011 at Covent Garden and was to have been conducted by the late Sir Charles Mackerras. Beecham’s herculean and quixotic enterprise in bringing the opera to commercial shellac is remarkable. Think how big the box of 78s would have been. It came to fruition in EMI’s Abbey Road studios in 1948 with sessions there sandwiched between BBC sessions for a broadcast which has since been issued by Somm. It is good to hear the famous Walk in its correct dramatic place in the drama even if it is momentarily disfigured by a patch of surface scuff. We are back with emotional mastery for Beecham’s 1951 Sea Drift. The utter rapture and fierce joy of the choir in Shine! Shine! Shine! is a little too much for the matrices of the time but that distortion comes and goes almost before you notice and is part of the experience. The recording captures a myriad details in this ecstatic immersion of mournful abandon. This was first issued on CD as part of EMI’s Beecham Edition in 1992 on CMS 7 64386 2 which is exactly the same as discs 4 and 5 of this set though the original has the advantage of 20 page booklet with a synopsis and the sing words reproduced; something you have to do without if you go for this six CD set. Before that it was issued in the 1970s as part of a World Records Club boxed set of LPs.
 
The last disc, playing at 80 minutes - as near as damn it - moves us away from Delius. I do not recall the German Gypsy Suite ever being issued before - certainly the booklet declares a 2011 re-mastering. The four movements are the bohemian equivalent of orchestral suites by Charpentier or Glazunov. We’re talking about genre postcard miniatures. Bantock’s Fifine at the Fair is an amply proportioned and lavish piece of late-romantic tone-poemry. The piece clearly responds to a recording technology that can accommodate the was of Bantock’s voluptuous handling of the orchestra so you may favour the Handley with the same orchestra as Beecham - part of the Hyperion Bantock project. It’s attractive certainly, expansively indulgent and lavishly melodic but not totally compelling overall. If only he had recorded The Witch of Atlas or Holbrooke’s Queen Mab. On the other hand Beecham’s 1947 Fand has a sharper imaginative profile and an impetuous urgency. It’s that urgency and virile pulse that marks it out from another recording from the next decade - the one played by the Hallé under Barbirolli (Dutton). I prefer the Barbirolli because I like a gentler pace than Beecham’s. Nevertheless the Beecham is colourful and very grown-up. Beecham clearly had an affinity with Berners’ Triumph of Neptune because he recorded movements from the suite not only for EMI but also for CBS in the early 1950s. The music is polished but has a satirical kick which reminds me of Walton’s Façade. Were Berners and Beecham poking fun at RVW and perhaps Grainger in the final Apotheosis, I wonder?
 
This is a bargain price box so you are not going to get the sung words printed. You do however get full discographical details as well as a fresh essay by Lyndon Jenkins.
 
With Beecham’s Delius do not forget the extensive recordings he made for CBS in the early 1950s and years before that for EMI; the latter now on Naxos. The CBS is invaluable as it featuresA Mass of Life and other things including a generous slice of the Hassan music which were never part of Beecham’s EMI project.
 
There were so many “what might have beens” for EMI and Delius. Imagine if we could also have had Beecham-directed versions of the Requiem, Double Concerto and Cello Concerto. The Requiem was finally done by EMI in the 1960s by Meredith Davies. The Double Concerto first saw the light of day on record circa 1967 due to the funding of the cellist Gerard Warburg who with Raymond Cohen and Norman Del Mar conducting the RPO recorded the piece in a doughty and poetically potent reading. This was issued on a rare Pye Golden Guinea Collector Series LP (GGC4073). This was reissued in early days of the CD on PRT PVCD8372. It was followed by a low temperature outing from Menuhin and Tortelier and much later and with more apt atmosphere by Tasmin Little and Raphael Wallfisch on EMI. When EMI finally got around to the Mass it fell, in 1972, to Liverpool and Charles Groves. This is being reissued by EMI very soon but first came out on CD in 1992 (CMS 7 64218 2. Norman Del Mar - a Beecham protégé - also had the Mass on CD. That was taken from a fervent, smouldering and ecstatically blazing FM broadcast issued by Intaglio in 1991 (INCD 702-2). It’s probably the best version I have heard and that includes Hickox on Chandos. 
 
This Beecham set is in short an invaluable and compact addition to your shelves. The problem may be duplication with previous reissues of these recordings. If you can live with that then do not hold back. A treasury of Beecham’s Delius and the music of other Brits in excellent stereo in the case of CDs 1, 2 and 6 and in good though sometimes distressed mono.
 
A treasury of Beecham’s EMI English music recordings including those precious stereo sessions.
