Gilbert’s entrancing violin concerto, On Beholding a Rainbow, is performed by rising stars Anthony Marwood (violin) and Garry Walker (conductor) with the RNCM Symphony Orchestra, and coupled with Unrise and …Into the gyre of a madder dance – two new works written for the wind ensemble of the Royal Northern College of Music, where Gilbert was for many years Head of Composition. The disc is completed by the haunting song-cycle Certain Lights Reflecting, which sets evocative texts by Tasmanian poet Sarah Day; it is heard here in a live recording by mezzo-soprano Susan Bickley, with the BBC Symphony Orchestra under Sir Andrew Davis.
