Zeb Soanes narrates on new album of Delius Hassan

Zeb Soanes

The Britten Sinfonia has released an album of the complete incidental music to Delius’s “Hassan” featuring Zeb Soanes narrating the The Story of Hassan of Baghdad and How He Came to Make the Golden Journey to Samarkand which had a long run of popular performances in 1920s London.

Alongside the Britten Sinfonia, the Britten Sinfonia Voices and conductor Jamie Philips this album on the Chandos label is being well reviewed. Of Zeb’s performance in particular the Gramophone Magazine wrote:
“Zeb Soanes could read the telephone directory and still captivate, so his vivid range of voices here is a special treat to complement his natural way of tempting a listener into the story.”
