Daniel Barenboim

Vaughan Williams, Walton, Delius: Orchestral Works (CD)

Daniel Barenboim’s sumptuous performances of English music have long been favourites and here they are beautifully remastered with state-of-the-art technology for this release. Pinchas Zukerman’s performance of "The Lark Ascending" is surely a stand-out among recordings of this work ("beautifully played, highly sympathetic performance" said Gramophone). What’s more, the addition of Vaughan Williams’s Tuba Concerto, making its first international appearance on CD, collects together all of Barenboim’s recordings of English music on one CD.
