Notes & Reviews:

Legendary performances on CD for the first time! In considering these works for chamber orchestra by twentieth-century British composers, it is worth noting that the Elgar-Vaughan Williams generation wrote nothing in these forms—but, there is a practical reason for this. The growth of the virtuoso chamber orchestra in Britain is a comparatively recent occurrence. In our time, with the proliferation of such ensembles, works such as these receive the accomplished, polished performances that are their due.
