Notes and Editorial Reviews

Elgar's slightly restless ebb and flow, his dramatic contrasts and complex detail bring out the very best in [Solti], who responds to Enigma by projecting a very vital, strong, hyper-sensitive performance which by no means lacks tenderness or warmth.

-- Gramophone 12/1989
