By Mart TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 11 Jun. 2007
This 5 CD collection from EMI Classics was released in 2006 to coincide nicely with the 150th anniversary (in 2007) of Elgar's birth in 1857. Included in the set are all the major orchestral works written by Elgar, recorded on various dates between 1962 and 1966.

The performances are notable for both the conductor and artists. There is probably no better or appropriate interpreter of Elgar's work than Sir John Barbirolli, who played for the London Symphony Orchestra for the first performance (in 1919) of the cello concerto under the direction of Elgar himself - later the same year incidently Barbirolli was himself the soloist. Barbirolli's subsequent association with Elgar led to an increasing confidence culminating in the successful direction of the second symphony at a London concert in 1927 that was to launch his conducting career. He effectively became Elgar's understudy when he deputised for him at a 1934 concert when Elgar's ill-health prevented him taking charge. Elgar's approval of him is endorsed by his comment that Barbirolli is one `in whose work I have confidence'.

Barbirolli was probably the foremost champion of Elgar's work during the 1940's to 1960's when he conducted and recorded many of the composer's orchestral pieces. The recordings in this set are from the late period in Barbirolli's life (he died in 1970) during which he was at his most experienced and accomplished, for by this time he had been involved with Elgar's work for more than 65 years.

Equally of note in this collection is the beautiful performance by Dame Janet Baker of `Sea Pictures', and the enthusiastic playing by the 20 year old Jacqueline du Pre (who else?) of the `cello concerto'.
