Notes and Editorial Reviews

This latest release in the Royal Philharmonic Collection is good value as a basic introduction to a range of Delius’s orchestral music. Although overall the interpretations lack the sheer sensuality of Beecham’s, there are excellent solos from the principals, and a luxuriant Song before Sunrise.
