About

Following their hugely successful cycle of Vaughan Williams’s nine symphonies, the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra is led by Andrew Manze in this album of the composer’s most popular shorter orchestral works.

This disc features Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis, Fantasia on Greensleeves, The Lark Ascending and The Five Variants of Dives and Lazarus, as well as the rarely performed orchestral version of The Serenade to Music.

Reviews

Anyone looking for an introduction to the music of Vaughan Williams ought to look no further than this new release of the composer’s most popular orchestral works from Onyx, Andrew Manze and the RLPO. ... The strings of the RLPO have a rich purple hue and Manze’s control of the balance of the orchestra’s rounded tone is beautifully judged and symptomatic of the deep sympathy he has for this music and these treasured scores. For all Vaughan Williams ‘Liebhabers’, this is a must!  Jeremy Dibble
