Item Number: NX.ORC100067

One of Walton's most idiosyncratic pieces, this new recording celebrates the wonderfully eccentric Dame Edith Sitwell, both through Facade and with the little heard radio interview from 1955 of the poet herself. Recorded and produced by Andrew Keener, one of the world's most distinguished record producers, it is the fulfilment of one of his life's ambitions! Carole Boyd has performed for over 35 years in theatre, television and radio, and is well known as Lynda Snell in BBC Radio 4's The Archers. Zeb Soanes is also a familiar voice as a pressenter on BBC Radio 4 and on UK television. John Wilson is internationally renowned as a conductor of light music and jazz, especially for his appearances on the BBC Proms.
