BBC Music Magazine

March 2006


“The playing of the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra under David Lloyd-Jones is as impressive on this disc as anywhere else in this Naxos cycle…”

Gramophone Magazine

May 2006

“Masterfully scored and lucidly argued, it's cast in three movements, the passacaglia-like finale movingly recalling and developing material from earlier in the work as well as from the First Symphony. The orchestral playing… is wholly admirable, full of vitality and, where required, infectious rhythmic snap (the the Holstian outer portions of the Scherzo). The coupling is Alwyn's rewarding Sinfonietta for strings... A compelling conclusion to another notable survey from Naxos and confidently recommended.”
