This well played and recorded disc shows some of the many sides to this maverick composer. The Prelude to Hell is almost Wagnerian; Carnival is unremittingly rollicking; while the Saint Joan Suite contains music of heartbreaking beauty. If there is no clear single ‘voice’ to be heard here, what voices there are prove never less than interesting and certainly worth a listen.
