Claire Booth (soprano), Christopher Glynn (piano)

Soprano Claire Booth and pianist Christopher Glynn explore the fascinating and multifaceted folk song output of the original and inventive composer Percy Grainger.

Percy Grainger was an extraordinary human being and musician - a precocious pianist, colourful composer and world traveller, a peculiarly passionate and emotive eccentric whose fertile mind produced an expansive oeuvre of original and inventive works. Above all Grainger is best known for his most enduring musical endeavour, his exploration and dissemination of folk music. With this release, soprano Claire Booth and pianist Christopher Glynn, who have spent decades delving into Grainger's folk music output, document their fascination with the multifaceted firebrand, and bring his alluring music to a wider audience.

Grainger's success resulted in multiple versions of his folk song settings, for orchestra, wind band, chamber ensemble and choir. But it's perhaps his versions for voice and piano that are the most characteristic, bringing out Grainger's own highly individual style at the keyboard. Claire's and Christopher's survey, one of the most comprehensive available on the market today, offers a variety of transcriptions of songs found in collections from the British Isles as well as discoveries Grainger heard as he roamed throughout the field. The album concludes with Grainger's most celebrated piece, English Country Gardens, in which Claire makes a cameo appearance on piano, joining Christopher in a rousing duet.

“Claire Booth and Christopher Glynn have nurtured a love of Grainger’s folk song transcriptions and re-compositions since university days 20 years ago. Now the love has exploded onto this CD, a cunning arrangement of 11 vocal and seven instrumental tracks throbbing with Grainger’s idiosyncratic genius for creating miniature masterpieces of human anguish and delight” BBC Music Magazine, July 2017 **

“The clear-voiced British soprano captures the wit and whimsy of the Australian-born maverick to perfection, despatching the folk-song settings with unaffected simplicity before joining her accompanist at the keyboard for the piano duet version of Grainger's best-known arrangement, Country Gardens.” Katherine Cooper, Presto Classical, April 2017

“Booth and Glynn beautifully manage the contrasts between simplicity and immense sophistication that all these songs regularly provide; it makes a really engaging sequence.” The Guardian, 26th April 2017 ****

“There is a personal character to Grainger's music also, which gradually emerges as Grainger expert Penelope Thwaites journeys through the first decade of his composing life… the unique Grainger glow, which comes from wistful chromatic harmonies that are spiked with wit, is definitely there.” BBC Music Magazine

“Rarely has the precociousness of his talent been better demonstrated than on this new disc...the rarities, like the more familiar pieces, are played with unapologetic conviction. Penelope Thwaites, a Grainger advocate since well before the current boom, paints the music in bold strokes...a major contribution to the Grainger discography” Fanfare
