Elgar's first symphony was an overnight sensation, establishing him as one of the leading composers of his time. His darker, more enigmatic, second symphony has always proved more elusive. Sir Colin Davis penetrates to the heart of the composer's emotions in a truly revelatory recording.

***** 'The first symphony sounds terrific and Davis's ripe, expansive reading is deeply saitisfying. The second symphony is if anything even better' Mail on Sunday

***** 'A radical version that sweeps away preconceived notions about the work. The headiness of Davis's approach is matched by the lushness of the LSO's playing and a sumptuous recording' The Guardian

'This performance is further evidence of Sir Colin Davis's intense rapport with Elgar's music ... a very moving performance, magnificently played' Sunday Telegraph

'Remarkable, above all for its depth of feeling' Sunday Times

'Yet another splendid Elgar triumph from the Davis/LSO partnership' The Scotsman
