Thomsons reliably idiomatic reading of the SecondSymphony make it an obvious first choice…
Music Week

This is a low-cost reissue of both Elgar symphonies and two lighter works in a single slim packet. The performances are generally good and also well recorded. The issue clearly delivers good value for money, including detailed and well-written program notes.

Bryden Thomson… finds all the charm of The Sanguine Fan ballet, characterising it well without inflating it…

Music Week

The playing of the LPO is beyond praise and the attention to the myriad details of the scores of both works will supply revelations to the most ardent Elgarians.

A great conductor who is terribly underrated. Lovely recording - sound, playing and conducting.
