About

“No conductor has yet surpassed him in conjuring up to sheer perfection the hidden beauties of Delius's scripts.” Those were the words of Eric Fenby, Delius’s aide and amanuensis, on Sir Thomas Beecham, a tireless and eloquent champion of the composer’s music. This wide-reaching collection extends from much-loved works closely identified with Beecham to more rarely-heard pieces that he only recorded once.
