Kenneth Smith (flute) & Paul Rhodes (piano)

This collection of some of the world’s most cherished melodies and popular concert favourites is presented by Kenneth Smith, principal flute of London’s Philharmonia Orchestra for 27 years, with pianist and accompanist Paul Rhodes, a duo partnership that has been performing and recording music for flute and piano since 1986. Most of these 46 tracks have been skilfully and sensitively transcribed by the performers themselves, sharing the musical content between both instruments in a way that allows the wide diversity of musical expression that lies within these works to be realised.

The arrangements heard here are by skilled musicians such as Percy Grainger, Philip Heseltine and Eric Fenby. They were adept at distributing the main theme and other interesting passages between the two players. The works in this volume include On Hearing the First Cuckoo in Spring, Brigg Fair and Dance Rhapsody No.1.

“the Steinway concert grands seem right in your living room, lending new clarity to textures and nuances sometimes mislaid in the orchestral haze. It also helps that Simon Callaghan and Hiroaki Takenouchi, first teamed together at London's Royal College of Music, play with such love, panache, and exact synchronisation...Roll on volume two!” BBC Music Magazine, July 2012 ****

“I have, on the whole, been very impressed with the sensitive way the two performers unite on this disc, and their collective spirit for addressing the knotty musical priorities.” International Record Review, June 2012

“I thought, how could such transcriptions maintain the subtle magic colours of Delius’s orchestrations? After hearing it, and with just quite minor qualifications, I had to admit that the arrangers had captured the essence of Delius’s music remarkably well.” MusicWeb International, July 2012

“Delius’s music seems quintessentially orchestral, as if irreducible to any conventional “argument”, just conjured out of the air...but these six versions are certainly worth hearing, sensitively executed as they are.” Sunday Times, 11th March 2012

Frederick Delius (1862-1934) was born in Bradford of parents who had been born in Germany. His father was a successful wool merchant and although he allowed his son to study music he did not regard it as a career option. On leaving school he therefore joined the wool company but he proved unreliable; he did, however, visit Norway and Paris on the firm’s business and met life-long friends. In 1884 he was allowed to go to Florida as an orange grower. This gave him freedom from family pressures – he neglected the oranges but studied music and was greatly influenced by the music of the plantation negroes. He developed one of the most individual and easily recognisable harmonic and melodic styles of composition. He was strongly supported by the eminent conductor, Sir Thomas Beecham, who gave numerous performances of his work and clearly established an appreciation for it amongst its listeners. Some critics have remarked that whilst his formula for composition was artistically successful it was so but within a strictly defined and narrow emotional and expressive range – certainly this is borne out by the popularity of the shorter works which form the vast majority of this collection, especially the exquisite sensuous idylls catching the lights, sounds, perhaps even the smells of the English countryside.

His last ten years were blighted by illness and in 1928 Eric Fenby became his amanuensis thereby enabling the composer to complete a number of works including A Song of Summer.

He died virtually a recluse in Grez-sur-Loing and, as French law forbade his burial in his garden, his remains were removed from Grez’s cemetery after a year and moved to Limpsfield in Surrey.

Frederick Delius had a strong champion in the conductor Sir Thomas Beecham, who praised the composer as “the last great apostle of romantic beauty in music”. This rhapsodic intensity of feeling is nowhere more evident than in the luscious harmonies of his exquisite idylls, The Walk to the Paradise Garden and On Hearing The First Cuckoo In Spring. La Calinda, from Delius’ second opera, Koanga, has achieved worldwide popularity
