Notes & Reviews:
We can safely add [Robert Cohen's] name to a familiar rollcall, Du Pre (EMI) and Isserlis (Virgin) probably topmost. We can certainly add Mackerras's to a select group of pre-eminent Enigmas: it is really special ...Elgar's immaculately judged textures are sifted with scrupulous care and illumination ... The brass couldn't be riper, and the organ wells up nicely in this impressively full and immediate Decca recording. No question, a star-turn among current Enigma.
