'Not only do Davis and his excellent band distil a remarkable level of concentration in this nobly defiant, dark hued essay, they also locate a heartache and intimacy that touch to the very marrow' Gramophone

'There's an inner intensity that makes passage after passage come to life as never before. Strongly recommended, even to those who already have an Elgar 3 on disc' BBC Music Magazine

'Totally compelling from first note to last ... Davis wrings out even more feeling than his predecessors' The Elgar Society Journal

'Payne's achievement is one of the musical wonders of the last 50 years ... The symphony's first great recording' The Independent
