Elgar Pomp and Circumstance Marches Nos. 1-5, Op.39 NI 7088 The Three Bavarian Dances are miniatures, works culled from Elgar’s choral suite From the Bavarian highlands written in the aftermath of trips by Elgar and his wife to Bavaria in the 1890s. Boughton treats these pieces with plenty of sympathy, and seems to have natural affinity with the music.
Boughton is nicely piquant in his performances and gets plenty of excitement into The Wild Bears with superlatively nimble string playing and nicely growling brass. Paul Corfield Godfrey – MusicWeb-International.com August 2012
