'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

two intriguing performances 28 Sept. 2008
By hillbank68 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Fabio Costa , in his review, characterises the tempi as 'fast and dry'. In the case of the Vaugham Williams, he's simply wrong. These tempi are exactly to the composer's metronome and middle-of-the-road. The Symphony, which is somewhat experimental and not easy to bring off, sounds well and is presented more convincingly than is often the case. As for the Rachmaninov, I've known this recording since it came out in the late 1950s (on RCA) and I am really fond of it. It is so easy to wallow in Rachmaninov, but here there is a strong sense of structure and the music seems better than it usually does, especially the relatively weak last movement. The big tunes are fine - not opulent, not luxuriant but nicely phrased and well controlled - and the big climaxes really work. This is a brisk, no-nonsense approach which serves the music well. It is true that the LPO in those days could sound a little ragged, and they do in the Scherzo of the VW and once or twice in Rach., but this is nothing compared to the musicality and strength of both performances. The recordings are old, but both are genuine stereo and sound pretty well. It's a good CD.

Problems... 16 Jan. 2004
By Fabio M Costa - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Boults tempos are fast, dry, but driven, it could be argued. The problem is that in the Rachmaninoff the Orchestra can't stay together for long -- every half minute or so the ensemble is all over the place. But if that does not bother you...
