Jeremy Nicholas
Gramophone, January 2017

Vaughan Williams scored the 1948 biopic Scott of the Antarctic, and the work we know as Sinfonia antartica, begun in 1949 and premiered in 1953, was, he said, ‘suggested by the film’, with some of the themes ‘derived from my incidental music to that film’. There are many excellent more recent recordings, but this classic 1953 account, supervised by the composer and with the original soprano soloist, stands the test of time. © 2017 Gramophone
