Biography

'In musical and general education the conductor must be unusually well equipped. He must have a great deal of musical knowledge; and I don't just mean of orchestral scores. He must also have a working knowledge of all instruments with which he is to come in contact, including the human voice.' Sir Adrian Boult (1889-1983) spoke these words in a broadcast talk in February 1947. As a ... Read more in Amazon's Adrian Boult Store

Sir Adrian Boult is an amazing interpreter of Elgar. The whole CD is amazing but the Pomp and Circumstance Marches steal the show here. It is seldom that a perfect performance and a perfect standard of recording come together but it happens here. Listen in particular to the fourth march and no other recording will ever sound the same again. This is truly something really special to listen to. A must for any collector.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By I. Giles HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on 23 April 2013
Format: Audio CD
This disc, compiled from recordings made in 1971 and 1977, encapsulate Boult's gift as an interpreter of Elgar's music. The recording itself, although not of the very latest provenance and thus lacking ultimate HD definition, is still faithful and fully up to the task of conveying Boult's view and providing considerable satisfaction. There is a clear sense of an authoritative musical mind at work here based on many years of practical experience.

Boult characteristically brings an objective splendour to his view of Elgar. There is none of the overt emotional response of a Barbirolli for instance but its very restraint delivers an accumulative emotional punch that comes directly from the music rather than from any imposed interpretation. This is why Boult is still so powerful as an Elgar conductor and why the recordings he made simply do not date, but appear to gain in wisdom as the years go by. More overtly emotional or subjective views run the risk of becoming unfashionable or dated. This is unlikely to happen to such a clear sighted and straight approach as Boult's.

The same clear sighted and objective approach is equally applied to the five marches and, as with the variations, this gives them a strength that will add to their longevity.

At this point it must be mentioned that there are other, equally valid views of the Enigma, not least that by Monteux and the LSO. His famously exciting and passionate recording has been wonderfully re-mastered and is now available coupled with an equally involving Dvorak 7 on Decca Eloquence label.

However, Boult's fine disc of readings here is the sort that will survive the passing of time and its transient fashions.

I'm still not convinced with the quality of digital downloads from stores like Amazon and iTunes so remain on the look out for good CDs, this does not disappoint- a really wonderful and crisp recording, offered here at amazon for a fantastic price. Thumbs up.

Excellent cd but question the quality of the recording. Maybe its me but it sounds alittle like there is a paper bag over the speakers. Has all of his big hitters on the record.
