Product Details

Editorial Reviews

The unplayed early works of Ralph Vaughan Williams have been a tantalising might-have-been for lovers of RVW's music. Now, building on the success of their recording of the impressive Heroic Elegy & Triumphal Epilogue (CDLX 7237), Dutton Epoch couple world premiere recordings of RVW's delightful Serenade in A minor (1898) and the Bucolic Suite of 1900. These tuneful discoveries are presented together with cherishable unknown scores from his maturity. David Matthews completed and orchestrated the slow movement of the unfinished Cello Concerto that Vaughan Williams was writing for Casals in the 1940s as the haunting Dark Pastoral, championed here by cellist Guy Johnston, whilst the orchestral suite from Vaughan Williams' 1949 choral setting Folksongs of the Four Seasons gives us a succession of delightful tunes. Track listing: Folk Songs of the Four Seasons - Suite (1949) edited by Roy Douglas (1952); Bucolic Suite (1900 rev. 1901) edited from the manuscript by Julian Rushton (2011); Dark Pastoral for cello & orchestra (1942-43 orch. 2009) completed and orchestrated by David Matthews; Serenade in A minor 1898 edited from the manuscript by Julian Rushton (2011)
