Bantock the brilliant!, 14 April 2010
An outstanding CD. The Hebridean Symphony and the later Celtic Symphony are both stunningly original. The former has brassy climaxes reminiscent of Janacek and the latter, for large string orchestra, includes six rippling harps. The Celtic Symphony is outstanding and so hauntingly evocative of sea, mist and legend.
The bold and brash The Sea Rievers and the Witch of Atlas are worthy additions to the collection.
No wonder Bantock drew the admiration of Sibelius. I've not enjoyed a CD so much for ages. Bantock deserves a wider audience - let this be your introduction
