No Notes Found.
‘One consistent advantage of Gamba’s faster speeds is that the extra challenge to the orchestra brings out an element of daring, almost always an advantage in writing that is surreal in its sharp juxtaposition of ideas and mood, with Mahlerian references to popular music.’
Gramophone

‘… expertly played by the BBC Philharmonic conducted by rising star baton-wielder Rumon Gamba.’
Classic FM Magazine on CHAN 9867 (The Film Music of Sir Richard Rodney Bennett)

‘With sharply defined performances from the BBC Philharmonic, this recording deserves a very hearty endorsement.’
BBC Music Magazine on CHAN 9851 (The Film Music of Malcolm Arnold)

‘In all this music, played with fervour and flair by the well-proven Rumon Gamba-BBC Philharmonic partnership, the vigour and vitality of the composer’s musical invention shines through.’
Gramophone on CHAN 9896 (The Film Music of Sir Arthur Bliss)




*****
Powerful, clear, passionate playing from the best Manchester Orchestra in town. Rumon Gamba really understands the creative tragic genius of Malcolm Arnold and the quality of playing is very high. If the final D major chord at the end of his very last composition (9th) doesn't choke you, then you clearly have no soul!
