Product description

Product Description

The BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra and its Associate Guest Conductor John Wilson record for the first time together on Chandos, embarking on a new series devoted to the brilliant orchestral works of Sir Richard Rodney Bennett. While internationally famous for his dances, jazz creations, and film and TV scores, Bennett wrote sumptuous works of concert music, as he called it. This first volume reveals him as one of the most brilliant natural talents to emerge in post-war British music. Influenced by both the American Songbook and his teacher Pierre Boulez, he also always strove to place melody and emotional honesty at the centre of his music. These traits are coupled in the epic Marimba Concerto, an innovative piece for the composer, moving from a colourful and lyrical first movement to highly virtuosic passages and strikingly athletic cadenzas. The demanding solo part is tackled here by the multi-award-winning Colin Currie, nowadays seen as the worlds finest and most daring percussionist, as well as a champion of contemporary music.

Review

Performances are electrifying: the acoustic of Glasgow City Hall lending space and warmth to the sound. John Wilson's BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra are on superb form, their playing combining transatlantic sheen with earthy weight. Dive in forthwith an invigorating feel good disc. --The Arts Desk, January'18

...His is music to return to often, when I am sure further and deeper characteristics, of unification and expression, will surely be revealed. This Chandos series will be one of the most significant in British music for quite a few years. --Classical Source, August'18
