Notes & Reviews:
This re-issued album is part of The Hickox Legacy series. For this installment, the London Symphony Orchestra alongside Richard Hickox present the orchestral works of Gustav Holst. Notable on this release is the inclusion of Hammersmith, Op. 52 and Capriccio, both of which were composed for military band but later edited for Orchestra, Hammersmith by Holst himself, and Capriccio by Imogen Holst. Richard Hickox led a rich and full career. He served in several posts, including co-founder of the baroque orchestra Collegium Musicum 90, music director of the Spoleto Festival in Italy, Principal Conductor of the BBC National Orchestra of Wales, Music Director of Opera Australia, and many more.
