Review for Volumes 1 - 6
"...Throughout these six collections the BBC National Orchestra of Wales are on top form; they obviously enjoy the music. Hickox is persuasively idiomatic an spontaneous, and the Chandos recording is first class)"
The Pengiun Guide – 1000 Greatest Classical Recordings 2011-12
'We owe Edward Greenfield the phrase 'the tingle test'; this disc passes it with colours flying.'
International Record Review
Hickox conjures a marvellous range of colour and expression from the players of the BBC National Orchestra of Wales… The conductors version of The Sea is the grandest and best-recorded on disc…
The Daily Telegraph
'Excellent orchestral playing, some first-rate annotation by Paul Hindmarsh and characteristically ripe sound from Chandos help to cement a strong recommendation.'
Best performance available of The Sea
Sound Quality ****
BBC Music Magazine
'The chief work here is the suite The Sea, full of colour and drama, while there's a rarity in the shape of the premiere recording of the Dance Rhapsody of 1908. Excellent recording.'
