Description
(2010 Grammy Winner for Best Classical Producer) With illuminating notes by contemporary American composer John Corigliano (who calls "the sound and structures of [Dylan] Thomas's words … astonishingly musical"), this recording features world-famous baritone Sir Thomas Allen as soloist and vocal narrator. Works include the Author's Prologue to Thomas's collected poems (which Corigliano calls a "lavish, exultant poem that bellowed and shouted with lust and life"), Fern Hill, Poem in October, and Poem on His Birthday. The excellent sound on this disc demonstrates why Steven Epstein won a Grammy for Classical Producer of the Year.

"Corigliano is especially sensitive to Thomas's violent, often musical imagery, filled with birds, ghosts, and stormy seas."—BBC Music

"The orchestration has the same crisp Stravinskian transparency combined with the American's delicacy and sensitivity…. Fern Hill is truly a beautiful and deeply touching work, evoking a sense of mood with remarkable technical mastery and expressive sophistication."—Fanfare

"A special mention should be made of the recording engineering, some of the finest sound heard on a Naxos disc. The orchestra is well-balanced and the sound has a gorgeous 'bloom' to it—while capturing the excitement of the performance in the moment. The balance between all of the elements (orchestra, chorus, soloists) is impeccable."—Classical Giz
