Nell Gwyn Overture by Edward German, Played by the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic, Conducted by John Wilson

Didn’t realize it but I’ve actually had this album (recorded in 2011) for a couple of years now; bought it for Ralph Vaughan Williams’s exquisite “The Lark Ascending”, back when John Wilson was just one of those English names to me. This piece though—what absolutely delicious music. I can’t describe what an almost erotic thrill this wedding cake of an overture gives me, especially knowing who’s at the baton.
