Notes & Reviews:

A performance of Appalachia heard by the young Thomas Beecham was to excite such an interest in Frederick Delius, that he was to spend part of his personal fortune on championing the composer's music. In later life, "La Calinda" and the "Prelude to Irmelin," became Beecham 'lollypops' used as concert encores as a subtle way of promoting his beloved Delius. This recording, made between 1928 and 1938, has been transferred from 78s and restored by David Lennick.
