Vaughan Williams’ seventh symphony (1951), Sinfonia Antartica, reuses numerous materials from the stunning piece the composer wrote in 1948 for the film Scott of the Antarctic. Therefore none will be surprised by the extraordinarily visual orchestration and theme, which any listener – even ignoring the title or cinematographic influence – will immediately associate with vast windy flatlands, scintillating icy lights, Antarctica in all its splendour – and dangers, as Scott’s expedition ended tragically, that’s the least one can say. As a complement to the programme, the Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra (where they are used to the great cold!) and Andrew Davis provide us with Vaughan Williams’s Concerto For Two Pianos: initially created in 1933 for a single piano, the work was adapted to two pianos in 1946 in light of the tremendous difficult piano part, and the composer also took the opportunity to change a few sections. Here it is performed by two Canadians, Louis Lortie and Hélène Mercier. And finally you’ll discover the Four Last Songs sung by Roderick Williams, a kind of Vaughanwilliamsian equivalent to Strauss’ own Four Last Songs, even though Vaughan Williams’ four songs were first orchestrated after his death, by Anthony Payne in 2013 – scrupulously following the composer’s orchestral habits. A beautiful musical testament, created during the last few months of his life. © SM/Qobuz

Hi-Res Booklet
Two of the greatest symphonies from England's greatest symphonist, Vaughan Williams: what a find! To cut a long story short, he composed nine symphonies alongside other pieces, themselves no minor works. The Sixth, finished in 1947, is a real orchestral deluge, in which wailing, hysterical saxophones, macabre xylophones, delirious brass and terrifying, martial percussion all meet, in particular in the titanic Scherzo, which follows a sombre, ghostly fourth and final movement which never rises above a pianissimo (frequently with the note, "senza crescendo"), and in which we find neither theme nor development, but only a  powerful and meandering polyphony made up of rhythmic and melismatic micro-cells,  in which some of the more desolate moments presage Gorecki's Third - in short, this Sixth is an immense masterpiece. The album signed by the Hallé Orchestra directed by Mark Elder closes with the no-less-imposing Fourth from 1935, the first of Vaughan Williams's symphonies to be published without a title - pure music, detached from any external element. More severe than the three that preceded it, it is nonetheless possessed of a great depth and a sombre intensity, with a few amusing echoes of Hindemith, which could leave no-one indifferent. © SM/Qobuz
