ArtistsBBC Symphony Orchestra
Having now become experts in British repertoire with highly lauded series of Walton and Britten, they reveal all the aspects of Elgarís masterpiece in this surround sound recording. Symphony no.2 is richly orchestrated and skilfully constructed, drawing on hugely varied resources of harmony, rhythm and melody, and making considerable use of thematic transformation as a unifying technique.
While the Symphony no.2 is one of the greatest products of Elgarís maturity, the Serenade in E minor for Strings is perhaps the most charming product of his youth. In this three-movement piece dominated by a deeply passionate Larghetto, the strings of the BBC Symphony superbly encapsulate all the emotions offered by this graceful work: tender, lyrical and intense.
