Notes & Reviews:
Sir Malcolm Sargent makes his debut on BBC Legends and after an illustrious period with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic where he made over 100 recordings, he succeeded Sir Adrian Boult as chief conductor of the BBC Symphony Orchestra and then remained very closely associated with the London Proms at the Royal Albert Hall until his death in 1967. He toured extensively to the US, Canada, Japan and Europe. He also had a very strong reputation as an accompanist and recorded with Curzon, Heifetz, Rostropovich, Oistrakh, Du Pre and Tortelier to name just a few. This all stereo CD showcases Sargent in Vaughan Williams's Symphony No.4 and Sibelius's Symphony No.4, both of which were never released by him.
