Notes & Reviews:

This final volume of the Naxos cycle of the complete Stanford Symphonies features the substantial 'First Symphony', whose first movement, with its spacious introduction and exposition repeat, is a remarkably broad structure and, at something a little over 18 minutes, must surely be the longest instrumental movement ever written by a British composer until the opening movement of Elgar's 'First Symphony' some thirty years later. The use of stopped horns is most unusual for a symphony written in the late 1870s. Stanford's tuneful late romantic 'Clarinet Concerto' has become the most frequently heard and recorded of the composer’s orchestral works.
