Notes & Reviews:

These first recordings were made in 1923 at a time when works needed to be broken onto the 4- minute sides of 12 inch 78s. Columbia hired the London Symphony Orchestra to record the first and third movements, the first being abridged. In less than two years, Godfrey was back with the LSO to record it complete. This digitally transferred compilation gives us these original recordings.
