Bax: Symphonic Poems

Bax' bleak landscapes are brilliantly conveyed by David Lloyd-Jones and the Royal Scottish National Orchsetra. The masterful Tintagel sweeps forward with color and inevitable force, while the equally fine Garden of Fand and the November Woods receive insightful performances as well. The lesser known Happy Forest and The Tale the Pine Trees Know are beautifully realized as well. Bax is not a giant of English music on quite the level of Elgar or Britten, but he was a very fine composer never-the-less. His works showcase gorgeous orchestration and intrinsic ability to convey the landscape of the "real" world in musical terms and a deep understanding of how tonal music could still work in the 20th century. A deep note of sadness permeates much of this music, yet it can also soar--especially in celebration of the natural world. The RNSO and Maestro Lloyd-Jones seem to have this music in their souls. I can not imagine a better introduction to Bax beautiful tone poems than this exceptional album.
