This British Music Society recording features several world premiere recordings by two composers whose vocal music is a relative rarity on disc. Benjamin’s is imbued with a sense of refinement and impeccable craftsmanship, as well as the rhythmic vitality and color expected from a virtuoso pianist. Bainton’s hallmarks also include sensitive and harmonically imaginative piano writing, his devotion to poetry resulting in settings with an outstanding artistic instinct for beauty. The English mezzo-soprano, Susan Bickley, studied music at the City University, London and at the Guildhall School where she won the Gold Medal for singers.
