Lawrence Power - Harold in Italy

Released today on Hyperion Records, Harold in Italy & other orchestral works, Lawrence Power with the Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Andrew Manze.

'Wine, blood, joy and rage mingle in mutual intoxication and make music together’ was Berlioz’s (impractical) description of the finale of ‘Harold’: he would surely have rejoiced in this impassioned performance from Lawrence Power, Andrew Manze and the Bergen Philharmonic. Hyperion Records
