Ralph Vaughan Williams Songs of Travel

Max Bruch Romance Op. 85

Charles Villiers Stanford Piano Quartet No. 1 in F major, Op. 15

The list of eminent musicians who studied with the Irish composer Charles Villiers Stanford at the Royal College of Music is nothing short of incredible: Vaughan Williams, Holst, Bliss, Bridge, Butterworth and Charles Wood, to name but a few. Whilst Stanford is probably best known for his choral music this concert includes his ravishing Piano Quartet No.1 in F, which is quite a tour de force. Brahms was Stanford’s musical god and in this work, with lush melodies and rich textures it’s easy to see why. James Gilchrist returns to sing RVW’s sublime ‘Songs of Travel’ alongside more Ravel and Bruch.
