CD Reviews

A great CD
rodboomboom | 02/10/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"English Folk Song Suit is one of my favorite pieces ever! I first heard the song when I played it in Windensambe. It's an exciting piece to play and to listen to. I would recommend this Cd to anyone with an intrest in great music."
Balanced & Refined English Folk Song Adaptations
rodboomboom | Dearborn, Michigan United States | 02/03/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Vaughan Williams is certainly one of the consummate English composers who took the folk song of his country and compsed delightful orchestra works around them.

This budget worthy 2-CD set displays this in two parts, the first performed by the Acadamey of St.Martin in-the-Fields while the second disc features more period instruments with the New Queen's Hall Orchestra and the London Philharmonic.

Celia Nicklin is superb with the Oboe Concerto nusancing this pastoral yet lively offering. Iona Brown likewise contributes a fine solo violin performance with "The Lark Ascending"

The strings also provide a strong offering on the "Tallis Fantasia", one of his strongest compositions on this selection.

Excellent example of this prominent English composer's love with folk song interpretation, in this recording done passionately and naturally."
I love this composer

"While not all his works are to my taste, his pastoral ones are so gorgeous that you don't really care that the more boisterous ones are wanting."
