    Vaughan Williams, Finzi, Gurney, Butterworth

    Flowers of the Field

    £6.99
    Roderick Williams | Jeremy Irons | Hilary Davan Wetton | City of London Choir | London Mozart Players

    These composers were all affected by the carnage of World War I, and their elegiac music expresses regret, lost innocence, love won and lost, sacrifice and death. George Butterworth's A Shropshire Lad, conceived as an epilogue to his Housman song cycles, encapsulates the poet's sense of life's transience. Ivor Gurney was both shot and gassed in 1917, and The Trumpet pleads with mankind to set aside the folly of war. Heard here in a new completion, Gerald Finzi's Requiem da Camera mourns the death of his mentor.

    Ernest Farrar and those of other fallen artists, and Ralph Vaughan Williams's An Oxford Elegy recalls lost friends with an intense and magical nostalgia.

    Vivaldi: Concertos For Two Cellos [J L Webber]

    Vivaldi: Concertos For Two Cellos [J L Webber]

    £6.99
    Julian LLoyd Webber | Jiaxin Lloyd Webber |
    David Wright | European Union Chamber Orchestra | Hans-Peter Hofmann


    The first arranger of Vivaldi’s concertos was Vivaldi himself, and Julian Lloyd Webber’s new versions in this recording reflect the composer’s pragmatic attitude and zest for experiment. Vivaldi’s Concerto in G minor RV 531 is his only original concerto for two cellos. Alongside this appear works both popular and recently discovered, the mercurial moods of the cellos representing instruments from mandolins to hunting horns. Piazzolla’s Milonga displays all of his most distinctive hallmarks. This release follows Julian and Jiaxin Lloyd Webber’s highly acclaimed album A Tale of Two Cellos which can be found on Naxos 8.573251.

    Shostakovich: Symphony No.13 [Vasily Petrenko]

    Shostakovich: Symphony No.13 [Vasily Petrenko]

    £6.99
    Vasily Petrenko | Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Choir and Orchestra | Alexander Vinogradov | Huddersfield Choral Society

    The climax of his ‘Russian period’ and, in its scoring for bass soloist, male chorus and orchestra, among the most Mussorgskian of his works.The Thirteenth Symphony is an emotionally wide-ranging work, and one of the last in which Shostakovich placed himself squarely in the public arena.

    This is a brilliant conclusion to Petrenko's highly-acclaimed cycle which has thus far received huge international acclaim, winning accolades from The Sunday Times, Gramophone, IRR, Fanfare, BBC Music Magazine etc.
