Product Description
"A very valuable addition to the Walton discography, particularly when the sound is outstanding, among the finest of its period ... Walton in his late sixties may have been a more relaxed conductor than he had been earlier, but with his feeling for rhythms and line he still provides unique insights." - GRAMOPHONE Sir William Walton (1902-1983) may be said to have continued the tradition of Elgar in British music up to the present. In developing an original voice, neither radical nor unduly conservative, he managed to remain both distinctively personal and English.
