In the Studio
October 8, 2004


Following his successful recording of Vaughan Williams’ Songs of Travel, Roderick Williams recently returned to Potton Hall in East Anglia, UK, to commit to disc a selection of songs by Gerald Finzi. ‘Before and After Summer’ and ‘I said to love’ are both cycles set to verse by Thomas Hardy. Finzi’s affinity with Hardy is well documented, both contrasting man’s mortality with the forces of time and nature and both sharing a sense of fatalism and alienation. ‘Let us Garlands bring’, also included in the programme, is based on verse by William Shakespeare.

Roderick Williams, since winning prizes in the Kathleen Ferrier and the Lili Boulanger Memorial Fund competitions, has gone on to pursue an active career in opera, concert and recital and was, once again, accompanied by Iain Burnside.

The recording will be released in Autumn 2005.
