Resonus Classics is pleased to present an exquisite disc of orchestral and chamber works by the British composer Peter Fribbins. The Royal Scottish National Orchestra and conductor Robertas Šervenikas are joined by violinist Philippe Graffin and trumpeter Christopher Hart in a programme of mostly world premiere recordings including Soliloquies for Trumpet & Strings and the substantial Concerto for Violin and Orchestra titled Dances, Elegies & Epitaphs dedicated to the memory of the composer’s father. Completing this portrait is Capriccio for orchestra, based on the hymn tune ‘Abide with me’ and the wind quintet In Xanadu.

This refreshing recording takes its name from the subtitle of Peter Fribbins’s concerto for violin and orchestra, a showcase for Philippe Graffin and the Royal Scottish National Orchestra that brims with vitality and clear, sinuous melody. In his new Soliloquies for trumpet and strings, superbly played here by Christopher Hart, that Fribbins’s gift for long, searching and euphonious melody is most on display
