      Jonathan Dove: The End (8:53)

      Mark Padmore, tenor; Britten Sinfonia / Jacqueline Shave

      Fresh from his triumph in the Glyndebourne ‘Billy Budd,’ star tenor Mark Padmore is joined by members of Britten Sinfonia in 3 quintessentially British song-cycles: Ralph Vaughan Williams’ ‘On Wenlock Edge,’ with pianist Huw Watkins; ‘Ten Blake Songs’ with oboist Nicholas Daniel; and Peter Warlock’s best-known work, ‘The Curlew.’ ‘The End’ by Jonathan Dove (a co-commission by Britten Sinfonia and Wigmore Hall) receives its world premiere recording here.
