Jones, Symphonies Nos. 4, 7 & 8


"Daniel Jones was prolific, an expert with the orchestra and with timbres of instruments. There were few who could match him but maybe he wrote too much instead of consolidating particular works to a level simply better than the state in which he left them. And yet...this Lyrita reissue has so much sheer sonic quality that it's a must-have for anyone who loves glorious orchestral sound. Jones was a genius of orchestration and the Fourth Symphony of 1954 is a truly wonderful three-movement symphony ... in a perfect performance with legendary ADD sound. I and others might want more "importance" from music but when ears are kissed by these sounds we can suspend intellect and just enjoy." Stephen Hall, *** PENGUIN GUIDE 2010
