Notes & Reviews:

In the late 1920's Arthur Bliss (1891-1975) was probably the most talked about composer in England, a certainly the most widely performed abroad. This CD presents a few of his lesser-known works with his own fine conducting in some of them. "Even in his late seventies Bliss was a very fine conductor, and all his performances have much character and remarkable vitality." -'Gramophone'
