marvellous recording of enterprising repertoire,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: British Overtures [Rumon Gamba, BBC National Orchestra of Wales] [Chandos: CHAN 10797] (Audio CD)
What a splendid disc. The first thing to say is that the recording represents Chandos at its considerable best. The playing is excellent and the conducting lively and idiomatic. The music is a most welcome addition to the discography of late 19/early 20c British music. Some of it has been recorded before, but never as well done as this: the overture Sullivan wrote for Macbeth is a particular delight, but so is the Mackenzie, and then there's Coleridge-Taylor.... If you have any interest at all in this kind of music, you must get this disc.
