Notes & Reviews:

"The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra performs magnificently from beginning to end, coupling elegance, eloquence, passion, and power with Hyperion's fastidious sound in a way that compels admiration from the listener for conductor, ensemble and composer alike." -Fanfare

'Bantock's prodigious output as a composer ... rested in the long grass for decades until Vernon Handley's Hyperion recordings revealed the many qualities of Bantock's orchestral music. At its best, in works such as A Hebridean Symphony and The Cyprian Goddess, there's a richness of sound that recalls the tone poems of Strauss blended with shades of Wagner' (Classic FM Magazine)

'What an achievement! Twenty-one late-romantic orchestral works in one box at mid-price or better. Bantock's lavish romanticism is superbly served by both artists and recording team. Discovery after discovery' (MusicWeb.com)

'E'n revanche, tous les amoureux de la démesure, des grands climax et des tonalités superposées devraient trouver un bonheur immédiat à l'écoute de ce coffret. Une référence' (ClassiqueInfo.com)

'Le label Hyperion a la bonne idée de regrouper en un coffret ses enregistrements consacrés à une bonne partie de l'uvre symphonique du compositeur anglais Granville Bantock. Grand ami du fantasque compositeur Havergal Brian, Bantock vit sa gloire restaurée grâce à cette série d'enregistrements couverts de prix et de récompenses à leur sortie en disques séparés' (Resmusica.com)
