Pomp & Circumstance March No. 6

  The sketches of Edward Elgar completed and orchestrated by Anthony Payne  


The Sapporo Symphony Orchestra take on Elgar’s Symphony No.3 under Tadaaki Otaka’s baton with as much flair as they did in their Japanese premiere of the work in 2004.

In 1995 Anthony Payne was commissioned to complete an ‘elaboration’ of the entire symphony and completed Elgar’s original ‘sketches’ of the work in what can be immediately recognised as Elgarian style.

Payne similarly completed Elgar’s Pomp & Circumstance March in 2006, Elgar’s first large orchestral work since the Cello Concerto, pulling out all the stops in a brilliant orchestration. This is only the second recording to be made of this work.

The Japanese orchestra affirm their accolade as one of the finest orchestras in Japan in this stunning performance.

The orchestra has received high praise from critics and public alike, distinguished by its clear sound and dynamic powers of expression.

"anyone who still thinks Anthony Payne’s ’elaboration’ of Elgar’s sketches creaks at the joints should make a point of hearing this performance"  

Stephen Johnson
 

BBC Music Magazine - July 2008

"Payne has got the true Elgarian tone absolutely spot-on ... the first recording of a non-British orchestra, the first also by a non-British conductor, and it is so good that it offers considerable competition to its predecessors ... the Japanese Sapporo Symphony Orchestra ... plays superbly throughout ... this performance cements the work in the international repertoire, and, last of all, is extremely well recorded ... Otaka has a profound grasp of the structure of Payne’s achievement ... greater than that of almost all his rivals on disc" 

Robert Matthew-Walker


 

International Record Review - June 2008

" ... it is revelatory to hear a Japanese orchestra sounding so confident and resplendent"
