Description: This new recording of the 1899-1099 Cotswolds symphony, offered here twice before in its first recording (first on Classico, then at mid-price on Scandinavian Classics), is likely to be the finest for some time (assuming it keeps getting recorded). The martial Indra never sounded better, nor the severe, steely A Winter Idyll. A disc to bring back fond memories of little-recorded repertoire from this venue and this orchestra in the early, glorious days of Chandos sound in the mid 1980s. Ulster Orchestra; JoAnn Falletta.
