5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Pairing of two beautiful performances 14 Feb 2013
Format:Audio CD
This is a really off the wall but totally succesful pairing, because although the composers are years apart, their sound worlds are so related.
I really loved listening to the Wright Violin Concerto and even though I was a little aprehensive about a singer joining in near the end, in a Britten-esque way it really works. Fenella Humphrys is a really spot on player with a lovely sound as well. Chirstopher Wright must be well pleased with this recording of a major work of his. Then came the Vaughan Williams Fifth Symphony. I read about this recording in the BBC Music Magazine where the reviewer mentioned that give a conductor of Martin Yates' ability a great work and great things happen....well I am completely taken with this reading of this great symphony. I have always treasured my two recordings of it, Boult and Previn (yes, Andre Previn) and this recording will now join them. I think where Yates really scores is in the way he doesn't force the music along, yet he organises the climaxes superbly. Also the sound of the recording is fantastic. I so hope that Dutton and Yates are planning to record more of the Vaughan Williams Symphonies. I recently bought the Dutton/Yates Vaughan Williams Early and Late works and that is beautifully done, but I want more of the Symphonies from Martin Yates and the Bournemouth Symphony. Can we have a really good Sinfonia Antartica next?

Excellent production. Interesting choice of music, well played by orchestras whilst Fenella Humphreys'solo violin is outstanding.
