Editor's Choice 'No other orchestra is better equipped than the LSO to perform Elgar's music - the composer conducted them in their first season and maintained close links until his death ... a magnificent performance' Gramophone

*****  'Terrific and deeply satisfying' Mail on Sunday

'Sir Colin Davis's live recordings with the LSO are rapidly establishing themselves as benchmarks of the catalogue ... This new disc is scarcely less essential' The Independent

'A marvellously fresh interpretation ... performed here with rare, unsentimental vigour'The Observer

***** 'Startlingly daring but what emerges is a totally unified view' The Guardian

'The greatest living Elgarian. There is a breadth and structural completeness about it that does justice to Elgar's vision ... sustained tonally and technically as only the LSO can' Financial Times

'The LSO's superb musicians play like men and women possessed' Sunday Times
