About this Recording

BENJAMIN, A. / BAINTON, E.L.: Songs (Bickley, Gillett, Hiscocks)

Arthur Benjamin and Edgar Bainton were linked by a genuine love for humanity, curiosity about wider cultures and a willingness to travel in the cause of their calling as musicians. Both were also caught up in the traumas of World War I. Benjamin is best known for his Jamaican Rumba. His vocal music is imbued with a sense of refinement and impeccable craftsmanship, as well as the rhythmic vitality and colour expected from a virtuoso pianist. Bainton’s hallmarks also include sensitive and harmonically imaginative piano writing, his devotion to poetry resulting in settings with an outstanding artistic instinct for beauty.
