'This is one to savour''
BBC Music Magazine

'But the on-form BBC Philharmonic surpasses those curently unavailable issues. Its lyrical playing is as sensuous and rapturous as the score demands, and its woodwind and brass colours are touched in with unerring precision, while Chandos' recording is, as so often, in the luxury class.'
International Record Review

superbly played by the BBC Phil under Gianandrea Noseda.
