Notes and Editorial Reviews
"The Enigma Variations, Froissart, Cockaigne, and In the South (a thrilling performance) all benefit from Slatkin's keen musical insight and impeccable execution. The London Philharmonic, long experienced in this music, provides its usual enthusiastic and authoritative performances."
