This disc presents the world premiere recording of Peter Horton’s new edition of Vaughan Williams’ fifth symphony. Horton's version addresses all the textural problems left in the published score. Horton writes, “The composer’s notoriously hard-to-read handwriting caused further problems, as the copyist assigned to make a fair copy of the score introduced a large number of mistakes, principally (but not exclusively) in the phrasing and articulation. To compound matters, these subsequently made their way into the orchestral parts and the published score.” The coupling is Christopher Wright’s deeply felt violin concerto, sensitively played by Fenella Humphreys. Wright’s concerto was written in memory of his wife, and looks to Walton for its stylistic roots, especially in the scherzando elements of the middle movement. Tenor Christopher Watson is featured in the work's final movement.
