*****

“Roderick Williams… is an intensely musical singer, acutely responsive to the sound and meaning of words, but also his approach to the English Romantic song repertoire is… revelatory. …Williams… is a rich variety. In lyrical numbers like 'Lizbie Browne' the melodic and emotional unfolding is sustained beautifully without smoothing over the subtler nuances of Hardy's words of Finzi's setting. ...pianist Iain Burnside is just about ideal as a musical partner, his playing full of vitality and wistful tenderness.”
