Not quite Blissful..... 7 April 2014
By BillyA - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
The CD is titled 'Bliss conducts Bliss', but that isn't entirely true. The Serenade is conducted by Brian Priestman and the 'The World is charged with the grandeur of God' is conducted by Philip Ledger. As with nearly all Lyritas, the recording was made by Decca in the 1970s, using Decca's audio engineers. Hence, the sound is very good 1970s analog (ADD). You get your money's worth in terms of time, the CD being 79:13. Bliss conducts Melee Fantasque, Rout for Soprano (Rae Woodland) and Orchestra, 3 movements from the ballet Adam Zero (Dance of Spring - Bridal Ceremony - Dance of Summer) and Hymn to Apollo (no singing). I find 'Rout' a tough nut to crack (maybe I will in time), but I do like the other three works conducted by Bliss. The Serenade is an odd work, with 2 all orchestral movements, and 2 sung by a baritone (John Shirley-Quirk), though the singing doesn't take up the whole movement of each. 2 idealistic love songs, along with an Overture and an Idyll. 'The World is charged...' is in 3 movements, to words by poet Gerard Manley Hopkins. Movements 1 & 3 are for mixed chorus accompanied by a brass choir of 3 trumpets and 4 trombones, while movement 2 is for women's voices only, accompanied by 2 flutes. The words were chosen by Peter Pears, who commissioned the work. Bliss remained a staunch romantic, but 20th century romantic. It couldn't have been written any earlier. He admired Petrushka greatly, and was influenced a bit by some 20th century innovations.
