Notes & Reviews:

Dutton presents a selection of rare and unrecorded Delius with the BBC Concert Orchestra conducted by David Lloyd-Jones. It includes the early tone poem Hiawatha in Robert Threlfall's performing version and a trio of concertos brilliantly performed by violinist Philippe Graffin and Sarah-Jane Bradley (viola). The program is rounded off by Sarah-Jane Bradley's glowing reading of the viola version of the Caprice and Elegy.

BBC Music Magazine
The real novelty here is Delius's second orchestral work... Hiawatha. ... characteristic melodic shapes and moods emerge in a sympathetic, clearly recorded performance by David Lloyd-Jones and the responsive BBC Concert Orchestra.

Gramophone Magazine
Three world premiere recordings adorn this invaluable Delius anthology ... mandatory listening for devoted Delians.

The Telegraph
[Hiawatha is] less robust than Coleridge-Taylor's cantatas but imbued with rippling sounds of nature, graced with passionate themes and orchestrated with lustre. The other rarities here, all performed with sensitivity by the BBC CO under David Lloyd-Jones, will be welcomed by Delius's admirers, particularly, perhaps, the Double Concerto in the version for violin and viola, in which Philippe Graffin and Sarah-Jane Bradley are ardent, affecting soloists.
