ArtistsMeriel Dickinson (mezzo-soprano)
Peter Dickinson (piano)
They appeared together in the BBC TV programme for the centenary of Charles Ives (1974); Meriel Dickinson was accompanied by Copland in another BBC TV programme made for the composer’s 75th birthday; and in 1986 they both performed on the South Bank Show documentary about Peter Dickinson produced by Melvyn Bragg on ITV.
In addition to their popular and entertaining programmes, they also worked closely with a number of living British composers who were particularly attracted by the special qualities of their performances. Three works written specially for the Dickinsons form the basis of this collection of reissued first recordings.
None of the music falls into the category of the conventional English song cycle and all of it demonstrates the vitality of the voice and piano medium enriched by a variety of texts and dramatic situations.
‘Altogether a most intriguing and imaginative group of works, and a most persuasive series of performances by the versatile Miss Dickinson.’ - BBC Radio 3 Record Review
