Notes & Reviews:

"Compared with the EMI versions recorded less than five years later, they are tauter, the ensemble is noticeably crisper. The recording is brighter and clearer in this transfer. The difference is particularly marked in No. 2 which, as Elgar said, was a work which Boult was the first conductor to make a success after the disappointing reception given at its premiere." -Gramophone
