John Wilson conductor
Andrew Staples tenor
Royal Northern Sinfonia

Berkeley Serenade for Strings
Britten Nocturne
Vaughan Williams Symphony No.5

‘Heartbreaking and sublime’ was how one critic described John Wilson’s interpretation of Vaughan Williams’ visionary Fifth Symphony. Wilson also rediscovers two unfairly neglected British masterworks – Lennox Berkeley’s elegant Serenade for Strings, and a fantastical, shimmering song cycle by Benjamin Britten, premiered in 1958.
