The ten short orchestral works by Frederick Delius that are performed in chronological order on this recording span the whole of his creative life. They also illustrate the cosmopolitan aspect of his art, his love of the four countries that most inspired him - England, America, Norway and France - and his love of nature in all its bitter-sweet transience. Displaying to the full Delius’ late Romantic mastery of chromatic harmony and orchestration, they constitute a perfect distillation of his very personal kind of genius.
