New recording of songs by Martin Bussey

02 Sep 2014

Following on from the critical success of his recording of Gerald Finzi's By Footpath and Stile (Resonus RES10109), baritone Marcus Farnsworth here makes his solo album debut for Resonus.

Presenting an instantly striking and diverse collection of world premiere recordings of song by the contemporary composer Martin Bussey, Farnsworth is joined by the renowned young pianist James Baillieu for the A.E. Housman cycle Blue Remembered Hills (with texts from A Shropshire Lad), the Two Hardy Songs, and the evocative and charaterful Garden Songs. Also included are the substantial song cycle for voice and small ensemble Through a Glass, Darkly - directed by the acclaimed conductor Thomas Kemp - and the beautiful stand-alone song for baritone and violin, The Windhover.
