Notes & Reviews:

"The Scottish Orchestra plays with bold brass and colorful woodwinds, but the thin strings are a problem for Elgar. The remastered early digital sound is brilliant and bold in a way that reflects the performances, but it retains some of the fatiguing character that plagued early digital recordings. Notes are excellent." - Hecht, ARG
