Notes & Reviews:

BBC Music Magazine, November 2013
Stockholm strings may not sound very full or burnished at the fuller end...but they are supreme in atmospheric pianissimos...It's typical of the thoughtful Oramo, too, that he chooses to fill the rest of the disc with tender, veiled string elegies to complement the sunset Symphony.

MusicWeb International, 24th July 2013
The opening movement is propelled strongly, the Elgarian swagger is exploited well and that ghostly passage suggesting a malign presence in a garden seems particularly eerie here...Altogether a very impressive Elgar programme.
