Chandos has much pleasure in announcing the release of The Film Music of Ralph Vaughan Williams Collector’s Edition conducted by Rumon Gamba as part of the highly successful Chandos Movies label. This collection will appeal to film music buffs and Vaughan Williams fans alike.
Vaughan Williams’s film music ranks as some of the very finest ever written, and this CD set contains excellent examples, many which prior to the original release had never been recorded before, including extended suites of Scott of the Antarctic, 49th Parallel and The England of Elizabeth.
“… these CDs constitute a most valuable addition to our knowledge of a great composer’s work, who, throughout his creative life, had the constant ability to surprise and delight his audience; this set is strongly recommended.”
