Notes & Reviews:

"An important issue...[After the first performance of the Symphony under Sir Adrian Boult in 1937] Parallels were drawn with Vaughan Williams's Fourth and Walton's B flat minor Symphony, for like them this is powerful and at times angry music...Both the Symphony and the Sinfonia concertante have taken 60 years to reach the catalogue, and the fact that they are long overdue does not diminish the warmth of their welcome. Congratulations are in order all round..." -RL, Gramophone
