If the five Essays for Orchestra by English composer Stephen Dodgson had been written in the mid-'30s instead of the mid-'80s, they would have been fairly conservative but still effective modernist works with heavy romantic overtones. But because they were written in the mid-'80s, they sound out of date with their chromatically inflected but tonally based harmonies, their themes varied in emotion but not in expression, their expertly crafted but hardly exciting developments, and their brilliant but hardly inventive scoring. David Lloyd-Jones elicits powerful playing from the Royal Scottish National Orchestra, and he makes the most persuasive possible case for each of the five Essays. Dutton's sound is rich, deep, and colorful.

Royal Scottish National Orchestra, David Lloyd-Jones. Stephen Dodgson is the approachable face of contemporary music. After the success of Dodgson’s String Quartets on Dutton Epoch, we are now pleased to release a survey of Dodgson’s orchestral movements that he calls ‘Essays for Orchestra’. Dodgson’s memorable treatment of the orchestra is exciting and lyrical by turns, and is played in fine style by the Royal Scottish National Orchestra conducted by David Lloyd-Jones. Hearing the first five played as a sequence gives a musical experience of symphonic dimensions, but the advantage of having them on CD is that favourite numbers can be lifted out.

By Gustav Holst - Royal Scottish National Orchestra & David Lloyd-Jones. Sullivan, . Ivanhoe. Lloyd-Jones was instrumental in the founding of Opera North (and its orchestra the English Northern Philharmonia) in 1978, for which he served as musical director and later as artistic director, until 1990. During this period he oversaw the production of 50 operas, including Krenek's Jonny spielt auf in 1984 (a British premiere) and Prokofiev's The Love for Three Oranges (1989). Throughout the 1980s and '90s, as well as in the new century, Lloyd-Jones was also busy compiling a huge discography, mainly of British orchestral music.
David Lloyd-Jones’s ongoing Bax symphonies cycle continue with a triumphant recording of the Fourth Symphon. - Fanfare. Bax was an unabashed Romantic, his music well out of step with the prevailing musical climate at the time of his death in 1953. His compositions, not often recorded, can now be appreciated and enjoyed for the unique voice they reveal. 4. kHz, 24-bit PCM – 2xHD Studio Masters. Recorded at the Henry.
