Notes & Reviews:

  • This is the second Toccata Classics recording of music by Philip Spratley, born in Nottinghamshire in 1942.
  • Cargoes, of which this recording was also the first performance, is dedicated to Dmitry Vasiliev and his orchestra in gratitude.
  • This is the second release to emerge from the association of Toccata Classics and Dmitry Vasiliev and the Siberian Symphony Orchestra in Omsk.

The final work on the program, Spratley's Symphony No. 3, Sinfonia Pascale (2009), is a fresh and original creation. Powerfully orchestrated, the impressive first movement ends in a tidal wave of resplendent sound and the third movement contains some music of blazing beauty... this is a very enjoyable album. ... read more ...

American Record Guide, July/August 2014
Philip Spratley's most attractive moments are his slow ones, especially the delicate opening movement of the Cargoes Suite, which has a tinge of Vaughan Williams, and the Nocturne of the symphony, a full-throated hymn. There is a great deal of folkloric, dance-like music as well, all of it played with verve and intensity by the Siberian Symphony and recorded in vivid sonics at Omsk Philharmonic Hall, obviously a superb venue. The bass, particularly timpani and lower brass, really packs a wallop.
