Notes and Editorial Reviews

This box brings together the three symphonies, coupled with the early works Prince Rostislav and the so-calleed 'Youth Symphony' as well as the composer's own arrangement for orchestra of Vocalise, possibly his most well-loved piece. The interpretation by Owain Arwel Hughes, conducting the Royal Scottish National Orchestra, were highly praised at the original release (as single discs) of these recordings in 2002, and 2003.
