Description: Another tranche of Foulds with light and "serious" music rubbing shoulders, the latter including the very Wagnerian Vision of Dante prelude from 1905-08) with the 1906 Lento e Scherzetto and the 1932-34 Puppet Ballet Suite somewhere between the two styles. All but the Saint Joan suite are World Premiere Recordings. Sadly, this will be the last booklet-note you'll read by the amazing Malcolm MacDonald, writer of books on Ronald Stevenson, Havergal Brian and Foulds, editor for decades of the journal Tempo and author of hundreds of liner notes for dozens of labels.
