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
