 Hill, David


Long an admirer of Nietzsche’s poetry, Frederick Delius composed A Mass of Life while at the height of his powers, blending passages from Also Sprach Zarathustra into orchestral textures of great expressive depth and striking beauty. Written in his final years, the Prelude and Idyll sourced music from a long discarded opera, transforming a story of lust and vengeance into one which emphasizes the transience of life and love. David Hill’s previous BSO recordings include a “perfectly judged” Dies natalis by Gerald Finzi (The Guardian on NX 0417), while his Vaughan Williams Sancta Civitas (NX2424) was described as “thrilling…a great case for a neglected work”.Classic FM
 

 "... a superb production and the grandest addition to the Delius discography in many years. Highest recommedation."

Adrian Corleonis - Fanfare - November/December 2012


               *****  - Exceptional

Giuseppe Rossi - Musica magazine - November 2012


"...This new Naxos recording, which was made to celebrate the 150th anniversary of his birth, is one of the most successful that I have heard in bringing the text and creative balance of the work to life. David Hill has produced a fine performance from his forces and the dramatic baritone of Alan Opie suits the role of the hero admirably without pushing the balance of the other singers out of focus. This is a performance well worth having of this neglected work ... All lovers of Delius should have this on their shelves. "

"...This has done more than any other to win me over to the Mass of Life..."

Simon Thompson - MusicWeb-International.com - 10 September 2012


"Naxos extend their Delius catalogue with a very strong entry."
