Notes & Reviews:

Elgar's Symphony No. 2 is influenced by a visit to Tintagel, a village on the coast of Cornwall, and the home of Alice Stuart-Wortley, perhaps the most inspiring of Elgar's various 'muses'. "No purchaser need be disappointed by Richard Hickox's, in which theramatic and devotional aspects are held in equilibrium. It is magnificently sung and played... and the Chandos recording allows all the detail to come through." - The Daily Telegraph

Classic FM Magazine
Elgar's Second Symphony blossoms in the hands of Richard Hickox and the BBC National Orchestra of Wales

BBC Music Magazine
The performance itself is consistently impressive. At its heart is a grave, sensitive account of the slow movement... Opening the programme is a surging, ebullient rendition of Elgar's Italian travelogue In the South, where the SACDs depiction of the deep-pile writing for bass drum is seriously impressive.
