C0541. ADRIAN BOULT Cond. London Phil.: Overture for a Masque; Sinfonietta; Boult Cond. New Philharmonia Orch.: Symphony in g (all Ernest John Moeran). (England) Lyrita 247, recorded 1968-75. Very long out-of-print, Final Sealed Copy! - 5020926024725
"It has in abundance the qualities for which this conductor was rightly acclaimed: an effortless feeling of movement, ideal clarity of texture, firm rhythms, and all of this with none of the ensemble sloppiness that sometimes intruded on his interpretations. The performance also features Lyrita sonics that remain a touchstone to this day in terms of naturalness and impact. With by no means negligible couplings consisting of equally successful versions of the Sinfonietta (a substantial piece with a particularly imaginative central variation movement) and the Overture for a Masque, this disc is a classic any way you look at it."
