Unusual harmonic idioms, sudden changes of tempo, energetic rhythms and often abrupt dynamic gradations are hallmarks of Elgar’s First Symphony. The tremendous success the work enjoyed at its premiere in December 1908, with the Hallé Orchestra conducted by Hans Richter, proved to be no fluke, and it soon began a march of triumph through the world’s concert halls.
Elgar’s work marks the first real breakthrough for English symphonic music. Reviewers lauded it as the most noble work ever penned by an English composer.
Re-release of an SWRmusic bestseller (ex. 93000).
Attractively priced, quality performance.
The recording exemplifies Norrington’s specific “Stuttgart Sound”.
“A truly first-class Elgar.” – Pizzicato
“Norrington has superb recording quality.” – MusicWeb International
“A highly enjoyable disc.” – The Sunday Times
