Elgar "Sea Pictures" - Royal Festival Hall

Elgar Sea Pictures
Mahler Symphony No.6

Vasily Petrenko Conductor
Kathryn Rudge Mezzo-soprano

Royal Philharmonic Orchestra

"Kathryn Rudge – who has recorded these songs with Vasily Petrenko – was a distinctive soloist.. The powerful glow and gripping range of her voice – low notes were really anchored with magnificent nobility, and the upper ones nailed with complete precision – came to the fore in a rock-solid performance of ‘Sabbath Morning at Sea’.  Rudge went deeper here, and was more attuned to detail simply because she had no need to worry about the security of her technique; everything was immaculate, and yet incredibly fresh and free."
