THE RICHARD HICKOX LEGACY
Richard Hickox brought these two neglected works into the record catalogue to critical acclaim.

In an Editor’s Choice review in 1996 – the year of its release – Gramophone stated: ‘Elgar completed The Black Knight in 1893 and it provided
him with his first big success. The text tells of a sinister, unnamed ‘Prince of mighty sway’, whose appearance at the King’s court during the feast of Pentecost has disastrous consequences. Elgar’s score boasts much attractive invention, some of it strikingly eloquent and prescient of greater
offerings to come. The choral writing is always effective, the orchestration already vivid and assured.

Richard Hickox’s performance has great bloom and spaciousness. Similarly, in the tuneful, vernally fresh Scenes from the Bavarian Highlands, Hickox and his colleagues respond with commendable spirit and pleasing polish. Typical of Chandos, the recording is bright and clear, tonally beyond reproach and with just the right balance between choir and orchestra.’

Richly endowed with musical qualities, Richard Hickox was a great champion of neglected music in general, and of British music in particular. His sudden death in November 2008 robbed the world of a most vital, industrious, and energising musician, whose discographical legacy remains a treasure trove of the record catalogue. With the Richard Hickox Legacy we wish to express our gratitude to and appreciation of this great musical artist.
