Notes & Reviews:
This new release features the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra and conductor Richard Hickox as part of the Hickox Legacy collection. The cornerstone of this release is Delius's 1906 composition, "The Walk to the Paradise Garden. The work was written as an intermezzo for his "A Village Romeo and Juliet." This is the first composition from Delius which shows the texture of sound that would characterize his later compositions. Another high point of this album is "North Country Sketches," which were composed in 1913-1914. Several musicologists view this work as the high mark of Delius's compositional skill.
