Notes & Reviews:

This remarkable reissue gathers all of the 78rpm recordings of the underrated British composer E.J. Moeran, including the magnificent performance of the Symphony by Leslie Heward (1897-1943), which had the distinction of being the first recording to be made under the auspices of the British Council. Many consider this to be the definitive interpretation of the work, even in comparison to the recently-reissued Boult performance from the 1970s. For those who've never encountered Moeran's music before, this historical collection will reveal a composer of great eloquence and imagination whose music, especially in the Symphony, reveals the strong influence of both Sibelius and Elgar, with the sweep and passion one finds in Vaughan Williams' symphonic works.
