The Sunday Times Wilson is the ideal interpreter of this fine retrospective of five symphonic works by a genuine “crossover” composer, famous for his film and television scores. 

Celebration  is a flashy Waltonian overture written for the Maryland SO, but the Marimba Concerto – virtuosically played by Colin Currie – the consise Symphony No.3 and Sinfonietta suggest a voice influenced by serialism but with a tonal melodic core.” 

This is a new series, devoted to the brilliant orchestral works of Sir Richard Rodney Bennett, with the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra and its Associate Guest Conductor, John Wilson, recording for the first time together on Chandos. It especially features the Third Symphony, as well as the virtuosic Marimba Concerto, tackled here by the percussionist Colin Currie.
