Jacob Symphonies Nos. 1 & 2

Reviews

'Both works demand attention and receive excellent performances...another welcome first release." Colin Anderson, IRR "The First Symphony was composed in 1929. We've had to wait nearly eight decades to hear it in full but this Lyrita recording makes handsome amends...the performance under Barry Wordsworth is excellent. The LPO seems to be consistently on its collective toes for him and I sense that the players relished the opportunity to play an unfamiliar but extremely well crafted score. These are two very fine British Symphonies. Both are serious pieces but they are highly approachable, tuneful works and they're expertly scored. This is another winner from Lyrita.' John Quinn, musicweb-international.com **** PENGUIN GUIDE 2010

'Barry Wordsworth does a nice job with these two symphonies. Overall the LPO plays handsomely and with commitment. The recording - an original digital production - is vivid and colourful, with rich, deep brass reproduction.' Stephen Francis Vasta, MusicWeb-International.com August 2012
