‘Elder brought out exactly the right sound from the orchestra ... the passages of hobgoblin mystery that stalk through the Scherzo had a kind of Shakespearian earthiness.‘

The Daily Telegraph on the Hallé’s performance of A London Symphony

"...Hallé principal Stéphane Rancourt makes an exquisitely poised and affectionate soloist [The Oboe Concerto], while Elder and his responsive Hallé strings play their full part in a lovely performance of unstinting poetry and illumination that does justice to this still underrated piece."

Andrew Achenbach - Gramophone magazine - January 2012
 


"...Another natural and beautifully judged performance from the award-winning Hallé under its musical director Mark Elder. They throw themselves so fully into the texture and colour of the piece it becomes almost visual ..."   ****

Anna Britten - Classic FM magazine - February 2012

 


"...a delectable issue indeed."

Piers Burton-Page - International Record Review - December 2011
