Les cinquante meilleurs albums de 2015 Tame Impala, FFS, Kendrick Lamar, The Weeknd, Melody Gardot... La rédaction musique livre son top albums de l'année 2015.

His best known piece is his Carol Symphony, which gained a whole new generation of fans in the Eighties when it was used as the title theme for a BBC adaptation of John Masefield's The Box of Delights. The first movement of the symphony kicks off in a jolly but not especially Christmassy way. But hang in there.
