Vaughan Williams: Job & The Wasps Suite (CD)

Current Stock:
London Philharmonic Orchestra, Sir Adrian Boult

Sir Adrian Boult made some pioneering Decca recordings, among them symphonies and other orchestral works of Vaughan Williams. Having had first-hand experience of the composer, his recordings have an authority in our age that is virtually unequalled.

The music on this CD contrasts Blake’s visions of darkness in ‘Job’ with the hilarious ‘Wasps Suite’, with its onomatopoeic buzzing overture and cheeky ‘March Past of the Kitchen Utensils’.
