Most Grand To Die (James Rutherford/ Eugene Asti) (BIS: BISSACD1610)



Shipping time: In stock | Expected delivery 1-2 days | Free UK Delivery
James Rutherford, with Eugene Asti at the piano, here records his first disc for BIS, presenting a programme of works from composers all influenced greatly by the First World War.

George Butterworth's A Shropshire Lad takes texts from A.E. Housman's poems of young men facing death.

Vaughan Williams turned to poems by Robert Louis Stevenson, for his Songs of Travel, a set of nine songs in which the wanderer-narrator philosophically accepts the mixture of joys and sorrows offered to him along the road.

Gurney - the youngest of the three composers - was also a poet, and in Severn Meadows expressed his longing for home in both text and music. Severn Meadows was composed during Gurney's time in the trenches.
