Review

Celebrated tenor Mark Padmore joins the Britten Sinfonia in some of the most beautiful English music for voice and orchestra. The centrepiece is Britten's magical evocation of twilight and nightfall, the 'Serenade' (with Stephen Bell, horn). In Gerald Finzi's war-time cycle 'Dies natalis', the ecstatic mood reflects a child's wide-eyed wonder at the world. Britten's poignant 'Nocturne' completes the programme. --IRR OUTSTANDING: International Record Review, April 2012

There is no conductor for these classic English works, which receive excellent performances from musicians who know them well. Mark Padmore has few, if any, superiors in the Britten works. Stephen Bell is a poetic soloist in the evocative Serenade. Both can be heard at their best in the Blake Elegy. In the Nocturne, the all-round virtuosity of the instrumentalists is thrilling. Finzi's Dies Natalis in turn is beautifully sung and played. --The Daily Telegraph, 15 April 2012

A release that exudes quality. --Time Out

Mark Padmore's new recording is terrific - his voice is expressive, beautiful and terrifying by turns...Finzi s unforced melodic gifts are balm after 50 minutes of death-haunted Britten, and Padmore sings with such sweetness that you ll convince yourself that Finzi was an underrated genius. --Graham Rickson, TheArtsDesk.com, 16 June 2012

The crispness and clarity of diction, with an added degree of pungency to the more disturbing poems, brings a new dimension to these Britten performances ... a superb release --Yorkshire Post August 2012
