Australian-born Percy Grainger was among the most original and free-thinking of twentieth-century composers, a multi-talented musician with outstanding gifts as colourful creator, precocious pianist, world traveller, writer and ethnographer whose fertile mind produced an expansive œuvre of highly inventive works. Star soprano Claire Booth and pianist Christopher Glynn explore Grainger’s fascinating and multifaceted folk song output, a tribute to the composer’s most enduring musical endeavour, i.e. the exploration and dissemination of folk music – in the present case, songs from the British Isles he has collected and written out the discreet but efficient harmonizations of. Grainger’s success resulted among others in multiple versions of his settings, for orchestra, wind band, chamber ensemble and choir. But it’s perhaps his versions for voice and piano that are the most characteristic, bringing out Grainger’s own highly individual style at the keyboard. The album concludes with Grainger’s most celebrated non-vocal piece, English Country Gardens, in which Claire Booth makes a cameo appearance on the piano, joining Christopher Glynn in a rousing duet.
