Mark Bebbington delivers a wonderful programme of English and French impressionism, taking as a starting point some of Vaughan Williams’ less commonly heard but beautiful miniatures for piano. Pieces by Ravel and Poulenc sit perfectly alongside these, showing the influence these composers had on Vaughan Williams. Poulenc’s whimsical Suite Napoli brings the recital to a fiery finish.
