CRITIC REVIEWS:

“Boult's affection for the g minor Symphony is in every phrase of this rapt and gloriously warm-hearted performance. The New Philharmonia are on blistering form and, thankfully for us, captured in a sumptuous recording of stupendous definition, depth and enticing warmth. In Gramophone's original review in 1975, Edward Greenfield was unequivocal in his praise: 'Anyone who loves English music, and who has never heard this heart-warming music, should go at once to this record’.”

- Gramophone, 2010



“Boult's radiant (mid-1970s) performance is both gripping and spacious, the recording very impressive and cast in the Boult mode. Characteristically he refuses to push too hard too soon, but the ebb and flow of tension are superbly controlled to build the most powerful possible climax.”
