Vaughan Williams:The Lark Ascending Greensleeves; Job (A Masque for Dancing)

Philharmonia Orchestra
Barry Wordsworth**
Consort of London
Robert Haydon Clark*
David Jurwitz (violin)*

 


(Lark)“(David juritz’ tone is pure and effortlessly controlled … a few lines that inspired Vaughan Williams are spoken before by Niamh Cusack, a legitimate recording device” (Job): “it (was) to the credit of Collins that Barry Wordsworth was chosen for their recording of Vaughan Williams’ Job with the Philharmonia . In my opinion, he fully justifies the risk, with an extremely fine interpretation that I would rank next to Boult’s (EMI) as far as recordings are concerned … He never lets us forget that this score was written for the stage, and the drama behind the notes is fully realized … Collins provided a clear and balanced recording” (Gramophone)
