Andrew Manze, RLPO
Vaughan Williams Symphonies Volume 2. Nos 3 'A Pas
ONYX4161

Andrew Manze and the RLPO's Vaughan Williams cycle got off to a flying start with stunning reviews all round and a UK classical chart position. The latest release pairs the 3rd, composed shortly after the horrors of the 1st World War, and a deeply personal statement (RVW served as an ambulance driver for the Royal Army Medical Corps on the western front) , and the 4th - a violent, angry work that in many ways is a release of the rage under the surface of the preceding symphony. Released on 31 March 2017


Shai Wosner
IMPROMPTU
ONYX4172

After his wonderfully quirky and highly praised Haydn & Ligeti album, Shai Wosner returns to solo piano repertoire for his next project. As always with this artist, there is something very different on offer - Impromptus by Chopin, Dvorak, Liszt, Gershwin, and Schubert rub shoulders with Beethoven's Fantasy op77 - the nearest thing we have to a Beethoven 'improvisation'. The composer did indeed improvise this work at a private house performance, then went home and wrote it down from memory! Ives's Improvisations 1&3 round off an eclectic programme. released on 31 march 2017
