Format: Audio CD
I discovered both my favourite albums when I was 15 and now I'm nearing 50. One of those was Neville Marriner and the Academy of St Martin in the Fields' renderings of Tippett's Double String Concerto and the Fantasia Concertante. Long ago there was a performance of the Double String Concerto broadcast from the Proms which I found breathtakingly vivacious and alive. I was hearing rhythms in classical music that I had never heard before. I went out and picked up the record the following day, and thus came to my first hearing of the wonderful Fantasia Concertante. This amazing work peaks with what is still the most vast and spacious fugue I know, building relentlessly, teetering always on the verge of chaos, but just holding back until the great swooping resolution. Thus began my lifelong love affair with Tippett, with his vivacity, intelligence, humanity and highly individualistic vision of beauty. I have to say that none of the later works ever struck me with such immediacy. I have had since to learn how to persist with initially difficult music, until the code is cracked, and I emerge into another of the ever more strange and beautiful worlds that he created.

These discs I see include the Colin Davis Concerti. The Concerto for Orchestra is amazing but it's really just an introduction to what is my favourite of the operas, King Priam. The Davis rendering of the Triple Concerto is a bit muddy in my opinion. I don't think the orchestra really understood what they were supposed to be doing. The later Chandos recording with Hickox made much more sense. The Solti Byzantium with Faye Robinson is very beautiful and exotic, and will take you vividly into Yeat's poem and the world it describes, if you allow it to.

This is a great set but I would have to give it 5 stars for the Marriner recordings, whatever else it might include.

a fascinating mix of early and late Tippett not often heard these days
