5.0 out of 5 stars No gimmicks here, 19 Mar. 2011
Excellent sound quality, crisp performances and no gimmicks; the music is allowed to speak for itself. This means that it simply improves on frequent listening, rather than becoming irksome.

And it's very exciting! There is all the energy that you would hope to find in a live performance; just listen to the punchy timpani in the 5th, for example.

On each disc a "big" symphony is coupled with a less familiar one, and this works well for me. Useful programme notes by Lindsay Kemp and, if it matters to you, stylish packaging.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very, very good (even if you like Thomas Tallis), 29 Aug. 2010
This review is from: Golden (Audio CD)
Intelligent, unpretentious composition; fabulous interaction within the trio; consummate musicianship.

The sleeve notes contain Kit Downes' rationale for each piece.

Favourite tracks at the moment are Jump Minzi Jump; Power and Patience; Roots.
