Ethel Smythe

Sound Off with Katy Henriksen


Although British composer Ethel Smyth's The Priso, which premiered in 1931, draws comparisons to Gustav Mahler and Richard Wagner, this groundbreaking composer saw none of their acclaim, thanks to misogyny. A new--and world premiere--recording of this undefinable work for chamber orchestra, chorus and vocal soloists from James Blachley leading the Experiental Orchestra and Chorus with soloists Sarah Brailey and Dashon Burton, released last month on Chandos, attempts to rectify that wrong.
