Vaughan Williams Orchestral Favourites Volume 3
The music on this disc includes several of Vaughan Williams’ most essential works and it is characteristic of his accessible musical language.
"William Boughton imparts tremendous zest to VW's Wasps Overture, fully in keeping with its breezy nature, and he gives the big central tune its true nobility. Michael Bochmann, I note, was a pupil of the late Frederick Grinke, whose recording of The lark ascending must have introduced this ravishing piece to many readers of Gramophone, as it did to me. Bochmann plays it like his teacher, with unaffected ease and a natural appreciation of its poetry. His tone is pure and steady, even at the stratospheric height to which the lark takes him. The recording has the customary Nimbus fidelity." Gramophone
"Opening with an exuberant account of The Wasps Overture, this is a very attractive and generous 70-minute collection of favourite Vaughan Williams orchestral pieces." The Penguin Guide
