Notes & Reviews:

The disc open with Eugene d'Albert's 'Overture to Esther'. The Biblical Esther had little time for honor, or even religion, and d'Albert's overture similarly throws caution to the wind, before eventually she, and he, are won back to the arms of King Ahasuerus. Lamond's only symphony, was begun in 1885 and published in 1893. In four movements, a sense of generous assurance flows through this work which sits comfortably between Beethoven, looking backward, and Mahler in the future.

'Martyn Brabbins and the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra do offer vivid accounts that are inspired, insightful, and invigorating and that succeed in capturing the music's strengths. The brass are potent, the strings sumptuous, the winds rich in tone, and the perspective quite realistic. All are a credit to Hyperion's now-legendary engineering... this is an important release and one that makes opening your wallet worthwhile' (Fanfare, USA)

'A thoroughly likeable issue, well worth exploring' (Gramophone)

'The world of classical music should be welcoming to these freshly liberated works long condemned to dusty shelves and unmerited oblivion. Well done to Hyperion and all concerned in the project' (www.musicweb.uk.net)

'Glasgow gave Europe two of its leading musical talents of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Thanks to yet another adventurous project from Hyperion, their legacy is guaranteed' (The Scotsman)
