KHCD-2012-017DL (STEREO) - Tippett: The Shires Suite - Leicestershire Schools Symphony Orchestra with the Leicestershire Chorale/Peter Fletcher, conductor; Douglas Young: Virages - Region One - with Rohan de Saram, cello - Leicestershire Schools Symphony Orchestra/Douglas Young, conductor - Tippett's "The Shires Suite", originally written for the Leicestershire Schools Symphony, was written in stages  between 1965 and 1970, and is a snapshot into his stylistic developments during the period,. Despite its pastoral title, it contains a richness of texture that has jazz influences, pungent and jagged sounds combined with well-known canons or rounds (ably sung by the Leicestershire Chorale). The Young Virages (meaning "cornerings" or "turning-points") has influences of Messiaen and Xenakis, and explores the ways in which time and space interact in music. The solo cello serves a focal point, from which sound clusters and disparate groups of instruments spin off  in and around each other.  An excellent condition Unicorn LP transcribed by John Whitmore was the basis of this digital remastering by Klassic Haus. Extraordinary music played by an exceptional group of performers.
