CORFIELD GODFREY (b. 1950) The
Children of Húrin Volante SO PRIMA FACIE PFCD126/7 [78:11
+ 56:21] [MP]
A decent demo recording of a work which will be a powerful addition to the repertoire when it finally achieves its first performance.
Sir Edward ELGAR (1857-1934)
In the South (Alassio), Pomp & Circumstance March No.4 Royal PO/Sir Yehudi Menuhin rec. 1994 TRING TRP018 [59:19]
A wholly satisfying compilation.
George Frideric HANDEL (1685-1759) Apollo e Dafne, Harp Concerto Thomas Hemsley (baritone) Osian Ellis (harp)
Geraint Jones O/Geraint Jones,
Boyd Neel O/Thurston Dart rec. 1955/57 CAMEO CLASSICS CC9127 [69:28]
Leading conductors, instrumentalists, and singers in full communicative
Elegy Luc Tooten (cello) Stéphane De May (piano)
Flemish Radio Ch/Bo Holten rec. 2010 DANACORD DACOCD731 [63:47]
A varied, imaginative, and interesting programme.
Garden of Joys and Sorrows Works by Aguila, Debussy, Takemitsu, Dubois &
Gubaidulina hat trick rec. 2014 BRIDGE 9472 [59:41]
A beautifully played programme, in which each work is illuminated by several (in some cases all) of the other works.
What’s Next Vivaldi? Patricia Kopatchinskaja (violin);
Il Giardino Armonico/Giovanni Antonini rec. 2018 ALPHA 624
A very mixed bag; well worth having for four of the five Vivaldi
concertos, but not for the rest.
