Orchestra Nova, under respected conductor George Vass, returns to Resonus with a recording of major works for soloists, choir and orchestra by contemporary British composer James Francis Brown.
In an album of world premiere recordings, this enterprising ensemble is joined by Benjamin Nabarro (violin), Rachel Roberts (viola) and Gemma Rosefield (cello) for the exquisite Trio Concertante, while Catriona Scott and The Choir of Royal Holloway vividly bring to life Brown’s Clarinet Concerto (Lost Lanes – Shallow Groves) and his inspired trio of psalm settings The Heavens and the Heart.
