Tippett orchestral Works,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Tippett : Concerto For Double String Orchestra, Fantasia Concertante & Ritual Dances - Apex (Audio CD)
These are excellent performance of some of Tippett's most accessible orchestral works. They are an fine introduction to his work for new comers.
The Ritual Dances offer something different to the other works, being theatrically based and conveying the sense of magic in the opera. Having the later added choral finale is a bonus.
I cna't fault the concerto or the fantasia at all. These are three very attractive scores so, if you're new to Tippett, start your collection here. It's a bargain. A word of warning though; this is as good as it gets with Tippett.
