Barbirolli's Elgar 1st terrific; sound also
Sir John Barbirolli was a terrific conductor of late Romantic scores (try his civilians, also available on HDTT). His Elgar First Symphony is a case in point. I am an Elgar nut, in this one definitely meets my criteria for keeping the pulse moving along and thereby making sense of a difficult score while at the same time not neglecting any of the heart-rending gorgeous details. In the superb HDTT DXD sound, it's a must-have for the Elgarians among us, of whom I hope there are many.
Great symphony, together with one of the great British conductors and lovely remastered sound. Can't go wrong!
