Notes & Reviews:

Following the success of Symphony No. 1, which was Gramophone's Editor's Choice, and Symphony No 2 which was Classic FM magazine's Disc of the Month, the BBC National Orchestra of Wales conducted by Richard Hickox here performs Elgar's Symphony No. 3 as elaborated and orchestrated by Anthony Payne. Elgar spent the last years of his life in semi-retirement, 'a sad and broken man'. However, in 1930, a commission to write a test-piece for a national brass band competition rekindled his interest in composition and led to a commission by the BBC in 1932 for a Third Symphony.

BBC Music Magazine
... there's something oddly relentless about Hickox's attitude to tempo. The characteristic Elgarian ebb and flow, so well caught by Paul Daniel on Naxos , and so lovingly intensified by Colin Davis (LSO Live), is particularly lacking in the first two movements.
