Foulds 3 Mantras, Hellas, April-England


Foulds 3 Mantras, Hellas, April-England


"Here, we are given the opportunity to explore some of his finest 'serious' works, which reveal Foulds as the innovator, mystic and, in the short Overture Le Cabaret, entertainer. The most substantial works on the disc are the Three Mantras...the only surviving remnants from his aborted opera on Indian myths, Avatara. The central Mantra (Bliss), an extended slow movement of some 13 minutes incorporating a wordless female chorus, is a captivating and magical movement of great beauty. Barry Wordsworth and the LPO respond to Fould's music with verve, commitment and enthusiasm, and the recording is of the highest Lyrita standard." Michael Stewart, Gramophone *** PENGUIN GUIDE 2010
