Peter Warlock: Collected 78rpm recordings
Philip Heseltine, aka Peter Warlock, was an enigma in many ways - song-writing and arranging genius; fine orchestrator - but also a political animal, bon-viveur and ultimately a self-absorbed depressive who took his own life. This 2 CD set comprises (with one exception) all the recordings of Warlock's work issued on standard-groove records, between 1925 and 1951 - all lovingly collected by the late John Bishop, stalwart of the Peter Warlock Society, which has generously assisted with the production of this album whcih can be seen as a tribute to one of England's most influential composers of the early 20th century. Detailed notes on the man and his music, and these recordings, are included. Performers include some of Britain's finest of the age. The 'missing' item is a recording of 'The Curlew' by John Armstrong with the International String Quartet - this omission was not taken lightly, but would have required a 3rd CD making the set quite expensive - the recording is available via Pristine Audio
