A Sea Symphony' (Symphony No. 1).
Top customer reviews
Sadly, this mixed reception to a fine recording persuaded EMI to remix the recording for later releases. This resulted in some bizarre shifts in balance, particular in the finale.
This EMI Eminence recording is the first, naturally balanced recording. If you buy the EMI Vaughan WIlliams Collectors' Edition, you will end up with the compromised recording. Choose this one, if you can find it.
There is a fine opening fanfare, but it’s not long before the dynamics of the recording cause problems, with choir and orchestra inexplicably losing too much volume of expression in the subsequent opening section. Matters get back on course with the entry of William Shimell, but the sound often lacks depth and I had to boost the volume in order to achieve any kind of consistency.
In the quieter moments of the symphony, there is great subtlety in Handley’s interpretation, and the close of the work is quite exquisitely moving. But I would not recommend this version for those new to the piece: the best remains, in my opinion, Previn’s with the London Symphony.
