John Foulds: Orchestral Music Vol. 2
Volume One of Dutton Epoch’s John Foulds series was enthusiastically received in summer 2010, and so we are quickly following it with a second volume. This contains many more of Foulds’ light music suites and encores, coupled with the invigorating Indian Suite. Dutton Epoch’s pioneering recording of the music of John Foulds with the BBC Concert Orchestra directed by Ronald Corp was a delightful discovery for admirers of Foulds’ serious music and light music buffs alike. In this further selection almost none of this catchy and engaging music has been recorded before.
World premiere recordings: recorded at The Colosseum, Town Hall, Watford, 8th -10th March 2010 & St Jude-on-the-Hill, Hampstead Garden Suburb, London, 15th July 2010
“Ronald Corp, with the BBC Concert Orchestra in splendid form, offers 24 of the lighter pieces, making for delightful listening: this is a disc that has you attracted from one track to the next...Corp inspires sparkling performances” Gramophone Magazine, April 2011
“For John Foulds, composing light music was clearly not mere hackwork. He was a natural melodist...and there are times when the imagination goes way beyond what might be expected of a composer of musical postcards.” BBC Music Magazine, April 2011 ****

"Kathryn Stott, ever enterprising in her choice of repertoire, does ample justice to Foulds's more questing experimental pieces. Her performances throughout are impeccable, and recorded sound is beautifully atmospheric." (Gramophone)
