    Listening again this morning.....to my ears this is rather a 'satisfying' performance of the 1st symphony. Perhaps it is more fundamentally conservative than Nielsen's later works but it is nonetheless an impressively rewarding symphony in the hands of a conductor who appears to have a clear belief in it's worth!

    ElgarCoronation.jpg

    Two patriotic choral works from Elgar, the latter more reflective. Teresa Cahill is the absolutely splendid soaring soprano. Great performances of both works under Sir Alexander Gibson.

    These album covers have gotten tiresome IMO. I've hardly listened to his work although I understand he has caused something of a splash. There is a whiff of narcissism which turns me off.

    He's good, no doubt about that. But I think his rising above so many other great pianists is down to programming and marketing as much as anything else. I wait for his 48 or Bach partitas. I did find his televised Mozart piano concerto from the Proms rather ordinary.
