Good addition to a collection
on 2 December 2012
The title might lead you to think that this is a collection of British symphonies; it's not. There are nine symphonies scattered across the ten discs, with the remainder of the music ranging from concertos and tone poems through overtures and suites to a melodrama to music by Delius. All of the discs are of interest; few of them are of the top quality as far as the music is concerned, and those few have other versions freely available (the Bax symphony, Vaughan William's Job, part of the Holst and part of the Arnold discs). Nonetheless, everything here is of interest, none of it is poor and the performances are good, as far as I can tell with unfamiliar music. Recommended to fill a gap in most collections.
