Notes and Editorial Reviews

"...Ashkenazy responds well to Elgar’s various changes of mood, ensuring that the work [ In the South] is not episodic. The canto popolare passage is atmospherically done, including a nice dusky viola solo, and the conductor prepares for this section imaginatively..." - MusicWeb International
