Notes & Reviews:

John Wilson returns to lead the BBC Concert Orchestra in a third program of orchestral music by Edward German. Most of the works recorded here are either world premiere recordings or first digital recordings. This is repertoire on the stylistic cusp between light music and symphonic fare, and all of it informed by German's characteristic lyricism and orchestral flair. The program is focused on theatre music - the music with which German came to fame - and includes extended suites from Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing and Henry VIII. The Marche Solennelle of 1890 and the 1911 Coronation March and Hymn complete the program.

American Record Guide, July / August 2012
It's in these two marches that the full force of the orchestra truly comes into play; but all of this music shows off German's deft rhythmic sense and ear for color, and anyone who only knows the dances from Henry VIII will surely be impressed by the varied program on offer here. I hope they will also check out the symphonies and other fare of German (listed in our Index).
