Richard Rodney Bennett Partita
Ravel Piano Concerto in G major
Vaughan Williams Symphony No. 5 in D major

Louis Schwizgebel piano
John Wilson conductor

At the height of the Second World War, Ralph Vaughan Williams wrote his fifth symphony. Against the severity of war, his music dared to glimpse the serenity of peace. For a contrast to this enigmatic, impassioned and redemptive work, look no further than the technicolour tune-fest that is Richard Rodney Bennett’s Partita − and another score lined with the sass, sexiness and sophistication of jazz, Ravel’s toe-tapping Piano Concerto in G. Nobody conducts this music like John Wilson does, joined at the piano here by the inimitable Louis Schwizgebel.
