the projected complete cycle of Vaughan Williams's symphonies started by the late Richard Hickox has left a precious heritage in the discography of the composer. Now, conducting the Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra, that other expert in British repertoire, Sir Andrew Davis, takes on the challenge of completing the series with idiomatic interpretations of two masterpieces: the final Symphony and the ballet Job. The score of Job places an emphasis on tableau-like scenes, dances, and mime, linking it to a tradition of English ballet with dances from the seventeenth century, including the saraband, pavane, and galliard. In this masterly score, Vaughan Williams captures the conflict between good and evil, between the spiritual and the material. Job shows a strength, beauty, nobility, and visionary power which unite the many different facets of Vaughan Williams's musical style. The poignant and musically enigmatic Symphony No. 9 marks "the end of Ralph's life and is a turning point. It is leading out into another place. It is extraordinary", as the composer's wife stated after one of the early performances. The subtle direction of Sir Andrew Davis combined with the pure sound quality of this album does full justice to Hickox's great enterprise and promise a powerful conclusion of this already acclaimed recorded cycle.
