Elgar: The Black Knight

Chandos - CHAN 10946X
London Symphony Chorus
London Symphony Orchestra / Richard Hickox
The Black Knight, Op. 25
Scenes from the Bavarian Highlands, Op. 27
Richard Hickox brought these two neglected works into the record catalogue to critical acclaim. In an Editor’s Choice review in 1996 – the year of its release – Gramophone stated: ‘Elgar completed The Black Knight in 1893 and it provided him with his first big success. The text tells of a sinister, unnamed ‘Prince of mighty sway’, whose appearance at the King’s court during the feast of Pentecost has disastrous consequences. Elgar’s score boasts much attractive invention, some of it strikingly eloquent and prescient of greater offerings to come. The choral writing is always effective, the orchestration already vivid and assured. Richard Hickox’s performance has great bloom and spaciousness. Similarly, in the tuneful, vernally fresh Scenes from the Bavarian Highlands, Hickox and his colleagues respond with commendable spirit and pleasing polish. Typical of Chandos, the recording is bright and clear, tonally beyond reproach and with just the right balance between choir and orchestra.’
