Notes & Reviews:

Following recent releases named as Gramophone Editor's Choice, Sunday Times Album of the Week, and MusicWeb Recording of the Month, the Hallé turns to one of Vaughan Williams' most popular works, The Wasps' Overture. From the opening orchestral buzzing of a swarm of wasps, it emerges as one of English music's great tunes; a showcase for the vivid orchestral colors of Vaughan Williams' writing, presented here to the height of effect by the acclaimed musicians of the Hallé Orchestra.
