Notes & Reviews:

Here are further Beecham gems from the archives. We all know the conductor's prowess in the works of Brahms and Haydn, but this CD is worthwhile for the Bax alone. Although Sir Thomas was an avid supporter of this British composer (premiering his Symphony No. 5), this Garden of Fand appears to be the only Bax performance by Beecham available on disc at present!
