Vernon Handley offers us four major works here. This is a very good digital recording from 1981 and it still stands up as a great recording. The performance is excellent and the sound it very good.
Eventyr is a work that requires a large orchestra and the piece is handled very well indeed here. There is the prominence of the xylophone in this recording which is deliberate as it evokes the Norwegian folk lore theme with possible unusual images of unusual creatures such as trolls. The percussion effects elsewhere are also well integrated into the whole orchestral texture. For example the tolling bell in Brigg Fair. You may not hear it without identifying the composer. Then all is understood.
Brigg Fair is a tradition folk tune collected by Percy Grainger.
In a summer garden evokes the feeling of roses and sweet scented flowers in a summer garden. The feeling of warm summer air and birds singing.
On the performance of Brigg Fair and In a summers garden Handley takes swift phrasing of the more meditative interludes that seem to occur in Delius`s music. He seems to be concerned merely with the shaping of the whole rather than looking too deeply into each phrase. He does not linger unduly the romantic side of Delius instead he keeps things moving with sprightly rhythm, however repeated listening affirm that this is an excellent interpretation of these pieces.

Delius, interpreted by a master. 7 Feb 2013
By Corno di Bass Trombono - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
With the passing of Handley several years back, this is obviously not a new recording. While these performances are included in the giant EMI Anniversary Box, those of us wanting them separately must try to hunt up this deleted issue. For their efforts they will find what is probably the best Eventyr performance and several others worthy of owning for the Delius lover. The sound comes up splendidly as well.
