Gurney: Songs



Shipping time: In stock | Expected delivery 1-2 days | Free UK Delivery
Described by his teacher, Stanford, as \the one who most fulfilled the accepted ideas of genius", the poet and composer Ivor Gurney composed more than 300 songs despite suffering from bipolar disorder and tuberculosis.

The Five Elizabethan Songs show the young composer's astonishing limpid fluency, while Tears and Sleep rank among his most exquisite creations. Comedy, heavenly rapture, tender urgency and lovelorn longing all touch the music of this 'lover and maker of beauty', whose songs find ideal interpreters in Susan Bickley and Iain Burnside.

"Susan Bickley's sensitivity and vocal allure confirming her among the finest mezzos of her generation" Classical Source"
