Rachmaninov: The Bells, Vocalise; Tchaikovsky / Neeme Jarvi
From from the point of view of both performer and listener, The Bells by Rachmaninov is one of Wilson-Johnson's favourite works. Based on a poem Edgar Allan Poe, Wilson-Johnson is heard with the Scottish National Orchestra in a rich and dramatic recording of the work.

Ravel: Bolero, La valse, Pavane, etc / Dutoit, Montreal SO
It is Ravel's Pavane pour une infante defunte that Wilson-Johnson includes as one of his favourite works. Performed by the Montreal Symphony Orchestra in the hands of Charles Dutoit this is a most enjoyable recording.

Delius: A Mass of Life, Requiem / Hickox, Bournemouth SO
A Mass of Life is one of Delius' most famous works, and includes settings of Nietzche's Also sprach Zarathustra. Written for soloists, orchestra and double chorus this performance is powerfully inspiring, and as an added bonus, the CD also includes a recording of his Requiem.

Bach 2000 - An Introduction to the Complete Edition
Wilson-Johnson has said 'I couldn't live without the Brandenburg Concertos of Bach'. This recording with Harnoncourt includes not only the first movement of the Brandenburg Concerto No. 3, but also excerpts from the St Matthew and St John Passions, the Mass in B minor, and numerous other solo and orchestral works. A truly wonderful introduction to the music of this famous composer.

A Hard Day's Night - The Beatles
The early Beatles may be a surprising addition to Wilson-Johnson's list of favourite CDs, but goes to show the diverse range of music he enjoys. This recording was their first album to contain all original material, and includes such favourites as A Hard Day's Night and Can't Buy Me Love.

The Complete Glenn Miller
Wilson-Johnson lists many jazz works amongst his favourite compositions, and Glenn Miller was but one suggestion. Containing the Glenn Miller Orchestra's entire output, from 1938 to 1942, this magnificent boxed set is an essential addition to any music collection.
