Reviews

A 1991 Nimbus recording made in Birmingham's Symphony Hall by the English Symphony Orchestra conducted by William Boughton is impressive but also intelligent in planningas it includes Britten's Suit of English Folk Tunes (A time there was...), the Courtly Dances from Gloriana and his Young Person's Guide to the Orchestra.
