Bax Orchestral Works

Reviews

"Boult brings an authority and insight to this sonorous 1972 recording on Lyrita. The CD also features Bax's other two big symphonic poems of the period, The Garden of Fand and November Woods, so is excellent for becoming acquainted with Bax's mastery as an orchestral composer." Gramophone, August 2015

"Sir Adrian's radiant belief in Bax's music shines through every note on this disc. Here are three of Bax's finest compositions in performances and recordings that can only be described as resplendent...the Boult recordings on Lyrita seem head and shoulders above the rest." Colin Clarke musicweb-international.com "His performance of [November Woods] is masterly and he generates a great deal of tension, atmosphere and drama. Here is Boult at his very best." Gramophone "For a single-disc collection of the major tone poems, you can't do better than this." David Hurvitz, classicstoday.com *** PENGUIN GUIDE 2010
