Jack Liebeck has reason to celebrate with a trio of upcoming albums. On February 9th, London Choral Sinfonia and conductor Michael Waldron release “Retrospect”, an album of world premiere arrangements of Vaughan Williams’ own works, including his lesser-known “Concerto Accademico”, performed by Jack. The album also features Vaughan Williams’ seminal “Silent Noon” sung by renowned British tenor Andrew Staples (and arranged for strings by Owain Park). The album is released on Orchid Classics.
