About the album

Violinist Philippe Graffin couples his recording of Britten’s bittersweet Violin Concerto with Delius’s Violin Concerto, the latter given special resonance by being played from the perspective of Albert Sammons’s extensively marked playing copy of the solo part. To both works, Graffin brings a personal view and warmly expressive playing. The programme is completed by a world premiere recording of Robin Milford’s delightful The Darkling Thrush for violin and orchestra, a sort of wintertime Lark Ascending after a Thomas Hardy poem. Dating from 1928, this gloriously atmospheric piece proves to be a worthwhile discovery that all enthusiasts for inter-war English orchestral music will want to explore.
