"There is a double event to celebrate. The new recording of one of the major works of English symphonic literature and the return of the B.B.C. Symphony Orchestra, under its chief conductor, Sir Adrian Boult, to the recording studios. No better choice of work could have been made: conductor, orchestra, and recording engineers cover themselves with glory." - The Gramophone, January 1945 on Elgar's 2nd Symphony
This collection of Boult's Elgar from 1944-1955 features both the First and Second Symphonies, together with the Enigma Variations and Nursery Suite, wonderfully played by the BBC Symphony and London Philharmonic Orchestras in superb new XR remastered Ambient Stereo transfers by Andrew Rose. A delight from start to finish!
