The British tenor Toby Spence  joins the Scottish Ensemble in this live recording featuring works by two great 20th cenutry British composers - Gerald Finzi and William Walton . Spence sings Finzi’s five movement ‘Dies Natalis’ - a work which took Finzi nearly 15 years to complete, finally receiving its first performance at Wigmore Hall in 1940.

Toby Spence is one of the leading tenors of his generation. His close association with the Scottish Ensemble goes back to 2001 when he performed Britten’s St Nicolas cantata with the Ensemble. He has collaborated with the Ensemble on several projects since, both in London and Scotland.

The Scottish Ensemble are regular guests at Wigmore Hall. They are a unique 12-piece string ensemble which performs standing in a semi-circle without a conductor, led from the violin by Artistic Director Jonathan Morton.

 

"The warm, intimate acoustic of Wigmore Hall is preserved on this latest release in the venue’s ’live’ series ... Toby Spence sings with clarity and creates a charged atmosphere particularly in The Rapture (Danza)"

HMV Choice

“His vocalism was impressive, the rich sweetness and the legato line close to ideal for Finzi’s rapturous declamation.”
