Notes & Reviews:

"...the Sixth is probably Bax's best and most characteristic symphony... unlike his sometimes sprawling and occasionally overloaded earlier symphonies, Bax retains tight control over his materials in his Sixth, and its drama is thus more cogent and convincing. On top of that, Handley and the New Philharmonia's performance is stupendous. Like his mentor Adrian Boult, Handley goes after structure first, never forgetting color and contrast but always keeping the long line and the ultimate goal inviolate. The New Philharmonia plays as if its job depended on it, and this courageous performance matches the music's tone wonderfully." -All Music Guide
