Hoddinott Symphonies Nos. 2, 3 & 5


"The vintage recordings...were made by a Decca engineering team in the early 1970s and are spectacularly vivid in their presence, range and definition." PENGUIN GUIDE "Alun Hoddinott is one of the best and most resourceful of British symphonists, and the return to the catalogue of three demonstrations of that fact is welcome. ...these symphonies are more than 'resourceful', more than examples of formal ingenuity...their forms seem to have been devised as a discipline for, but also an intensifier of, Hoddinott's increasingly vivid sense of orchestral drama and colour. And these devices of Hoddinott's are listener-friendly. The performances are excellent." Michael Oliver, Gramophone *** PENGUIN GUIDE 2010
