EDWARD ELGAR: Scenes from the Bavarian Highlands, The Black Knight

EDWARD ELGAR: Scenes from the Bavarian Highlands, Op.27 , The Black Knight, Op.25

London Symphony Chorus, London Symphony Orchestra,Richard Hickox

Chandos 9436 @ £12.25*

“an exceptionally rich and full recording, with vivid presence, consistently brings out the dramatic tensions of the piece as well as the refinement and beauty of the poetic sequences…A disc to win new admirers for two seriously neglected works.”  The Penguin Guide

“Richard Hickox and his forces are dab hands at this kind of fare and their performance has great bloom and spaciousness.
Similarly, in the tuneful, vernally fresh Scenes from the Bavarian Highlands, Hickox and his colleagues respond with commendable spirit and pleasing polish. Typical of Chandos, the recording is bright and clear, tonally beyond reproach and with just the right balance between choir and orchestra.” Gramophone

This CD is being offered to Colchester Choral Society in readiness for its concert on 24 June, St Botolph’s Church, Colchester
