Reference: CDLX 7241

Format: CD

Price: $19.98

Description: A sprawling, nearly four-hour work which was given in Edinburgh twice (1929 and 1932), this was scheduled for a Glyndebourne performance in 1940 but the war and Tovey's death prevented that. Modeled on Wagner in terms of the relation of the music to the words, the musical style is, as you would expect from this composer, more anchored around Brahms and, in lesser manner, Richard Strauss and Schumann. Eleven pages of notes and synopses - no libretto. 78 min. Sally Silver (soprano), Yvonne Fontane (mezzo), Robert Johnston (tenor), Michael Bundy (baritone), Belfast Philharmonic Choir, Ulster Orchestra; George Vass.
