Notes & Reviews:

BBC Music Magazine
Davis is marvellous at bringing out the subtleties of Elgar's orchestration. Subsidiary middle voices that are often inaudible at the hands of less sensitive interpreters are beautifully clear here, with no need for undue emphasis, aided by an absolutely first-rate SACD recording of wonderfully natural depth and presence.

James Longstaffe, Presto Classical, May 2014
Sir Colin Davis shows how masterful an Elgarian he was, using rubato to shape the opening theme quite superbly. There's plenty of energy in the Troyte and G.R.S. variations, whilst Nimrod features extremely moving, resplendent playing from the LSO strings.
