Giuseppe Verdi was 79 when he finished his final opera the glorious comedie humaine – Falstaff, and he was 85 at the time his Four Sacred Pieces came to publication. In our own day we have seen England’s great symphonist, Ralph Vaughan Williams (b. 1872-d. 1958) complete between his 79th and 85th years such varied scores as the Eighth and Ninth Symphony, a Romance for Harmonica and Orchestra, a Tuba Concerto and choral pieces.
Fascinating is the venerable British master’s preoccupation with new instrumental sonorities. The Ninth Symphony, recorded here for the first time, finds the use of the neglected flugelhorn and of saxophones as a group (the composer had heretofore used the saxophone as a solo instrument in the „masque for dancing“ Job and in the Sixth Symphony).
Like the Eighth Symphony, the Ninth represents a synthesis of musical and expressive content dwelt on in previous works – afterthoughts of the Sixth and Antartica seem to be at work here, and the flugelhorn solo in the slow movement recalls the sound of the natural trumpet in the Pastoral Symphony. The scherzo of the Ninth has in it, too, something of the savagery of the celebrated F Minor.
Original Recording on 3-track ? inch tape, released in December 1958 as SDBR 3006. Foreword from Sir Adrian Boult on the occasion of the composer’s death the day before the recording session, which he was supposed to attend.
