Notes & Reviews:

"Mr. Bakels is clearly one of the most talented conductors on the scene today and a potential treasure for the Naxos label. Critics' Choice 1998" -American Record Guide

Brentwood Gazette
these 1996 recordings made in the Wessex Hall, Poole Arts Centre have a warmth to them which in no way diminishes the bleakness of sections of both Sinfonia Antarctica (Symphony No 7) and Symphony No 8 in D minor. This was a valuable addition to the Naxos range of recordings of British music, and worth getting whatever the price.
