“With clear, involving recordings these are enjoyable if not first-rank performances.”

Gramophone Magazine

October 2008

“The nickname "Flash Harry" may have stuck but there's absolutely nothing showy about Sargent's 1963 Proms account of Vaughan Williams's bracing Fourth Symphony. Indeed, it's the discriminating musicality of Sir Malcolm's impressively clear-sighted conception that impresses most. Sargent was a devoted Sibelian... and his cannily paced, shrewdly observant reading of the Fourth displays a big-hearted honesty that outweighs any minor imperfections or audience distractions along the journey.”
