About

As William Boughton celebrates his 70th birthday, we have put together this selection from his recordings for Nimbus and Lyrita.

‘Every recording contains a story but, sadly, there is not the space to tell them all here so I’ve selected certain memorable, hopefully correct(!), experiences. Revisiting my early recordings reminded me of the joys and struggles that we encountered whilst developing the English String Orchestra (ESO), the development of our sound, our thinking and musicianship. Every recording is testament to a moment in time, to our responses and emotions during its preparation and in the brief moment when the performance is created. Having been given this opportunity for a celebratory box-set I hope to avoid being too self-conscious and remain objective in my comments and in the music I have chosen.’ – William Boughton
