The Young Julian Bream

The Young Julian Bream album cover Format: CD & Digital download
Label: Dynamic
Release date: February 2011
Catalogue no: IDI6608

This disc features one of the greatest and distinguished contemporary classical guitarists: Julian Bream. It seems extraordinary that the discography of his youth has been only partially re-mastered on CD. In fact, this is true to such a point that many of his very famous performances are still difficult to find today, such as the Lennox Berkeley Sonatina recorded in 1960. The disc also features Bach's fantastic 'Ciaccona' recorded in 1956, when Bream was just 21 years old, together with a selection of other works recorded in 1960, that are currently very difficult to find. Among them is the famous transcription of Ravel's 'Pavane pour une infante défunte'. (Synopsis by Dynamic Records)

Performed by Julian Bream (guitar)

Departures album cover Format: CD & Digital download
Label: Saphrane
Release date: November 2010
Catalogue no: S 62611

Travelling is the theme of British tenor Benjamin Hulett's CD, who has made a personal choice from the works of British composers, including Lennox Berkeley's songs 'Tombeaux'. He has also commissioned 'Joys of Travel' (op. 124, 2009) by British composer Giles Swayne, performed here as a world premiere.

The young tenor makes a very powerful statement with this new album. He uses the term 'Departures' in several ways: the start of a journey, the CD as a new beginning for him and pianist Alexander Soddy. Another meaning is found in the theme of the composers setting texts in a language not their own - a linguistic departure. This combination of repertoire and theme is new and daring.

Hulett's strong point, apart from his impressive vocal qualities, is the way he brings together the various works in an organic sounding programme. Together with pianist Alexander Soddy, with whom he has an obvious close musical relationship, he forms a remarkably harmonious and balanced duo. (Synopsis by Saprane Records)

Performed by Benjamin Hulett (tenor) & Alexander Soddy (piano)

Ruth album cover Format: Digital download
Label: MPLive
Release date: November 2010
Catalogue no: LM 7418
Available from: Classical Shop

Only one recording of Lennox Berkeley's gentle, pastoral one-act opera has been previously released, indicating a neglect of appreciation for its understated but deeply felt dramatic core and long lyrical lines that this release may hopefully address and correct.

That modern recording was made in the studio; here is a record of a full and lively production, and indeed the very first, marshalled with calm authority in the pit by Charles (later Sir Charles) Mackerras, whose death robbed the world of music of a true man for all seasons. Some of his many enthusiasms may be appreciated here; for English music; for new music; for opera; for working with the best singers of the day and at the same time nurturing young voices.

This performance as broadcast is introduced and linked with narrative interludes by Lord Harewood KBE, who did so much to foster the performance and wider appreciation of opera in the decades after the Second World War. (Synopsis by MPLive)

Performed by the English Opera Group Orchestra & Charles Mackerras (conductor)
