Michael Collins’s new disc of Vaughan Williams and Finzi with the Philharmonia Orchestra was released earlier this year and has garnered multiple 5* reviews.
The disc sees Michael’s recording debut as a conductor of symphonic repertoire, with Vaughan Williams’s Fifth Symphony alongside Gerald Finzi’s Clarinet Concerto.
“…he shapes Finzi’s winding melodies as affectionately as ever…..Collins has a natural feel for the work’s structure and drawsglowing playing from the Philharmonia.”
