Sir Mark ElderDirection

In his Enigma Variations, Elgar’s first runaway success, he captured the personalities of his Worcestershire friends in fresh, inventive music. Butterworth, Vaughan Williams’s close friend, is a tantalising figure, for what might have he achieved had he not been killed during World War One? His legacy includes lean, direct settings of A. E. Housman’s A Shropshire Lad, heard here in a new orchestration by Roderick Williams whose performances are characterised by a perceptive depth of musical intellect. Sir Mark completes his exploration of the Vaughan Williams symphonies with the visionary Ninth written shortly before the composer’s death. Partly inspired by Hardy’s Tess of the d’Urbervilles, it ends enigmatically with the haunting sonority of three pulsing saxophones as if gazing into eternity.

‘This ongoing cycle of Vaughan Williams’s symphonies from Mark Elder and the Hallé is shaping up to be a highly impressive achievement.’ Financial Times
