Notes & Reviews:

"Vernon Handley's performance is a fine one, very similar in its basic outlines to Hickox on Chandos (though more successful in the finale) and even more warmly recorded. He does a good job maintaining clarity of texture despite the sometimes thick scoring, and he keeps the music moving intently forward The Festival Overture makes a nice bonus. It's a pleasure to welcome these performances back to the active catalog." -Classics Today
