A CD For Baritone/Barihunk Lovers
[Duncan Rock with Dmitri Hvorostovsky]
Imagine our great joy when we learned that the independent label Zoom had released a recording of Elgar's "The Fringes of the Fleet." This is a rarely performed piece based on poetry by Rudyard Kipling scored for four baritones and orchestra.
The folks at Zoom also managed to nab four attractive young barihunks, Duncan Rock, Laurence Meikle, Nicholas Lester and the supremely talented Roderick Williams. The work was a huge success when it premiered in 1917, but has been lost to time. Let's hope that some performance venue resurrects the work.
You can find the CD on the carousel to the right.
