Finzi The Song Cycles with piano


"Rather like the Lyrita recordings of Bridge's Oration and Phantasm this set is for true Finzi-Hardy connoisseurs and for those aching for a nostalgia fix of the true cross. Richard Itter did well to persuade composer-pianist Howard Ferguson - who had been such a friend - to act as pianist. Carol Case was at that peak where sonority meets a piercing sense of word-meaning. ...This set is practically unbeatable when it comes to interpretation and true Finzian spirit." Rob Barnett,
