This essential recording of Walton’s Troilus and Cressida is widely recognized as the finest available. Edward Greenfield wrote in Gramophone that ‘[e]ven among Chandos’ many bold achievements…this magnificent set…stands out…Hickox relishes the romanticism to the full”. Troilus and Cressida was William Walton’s first opera, a BBC commission, premiered in 1954. The version recorded here follows Walton’s more concise, shortened 1976 score with Cressida in its original soprano register.
