CD Review: BBC Music Magazine on Elgar- Sea Pictures and Piano Quintet arr. Donald Fraser

 

A new review of our Elgar CD from critic Stephen Johnson in the July 2016 issue of BBC Music Magazine.

“The result is pretty remarkable. Fraser hasn’t just translated Elgar’s notes into rich and powerful orchestral terms, he as added (discreetly it must be said) the kinds of touches of colour and splashes of figuration Elgar himself might well have introduced. It really sounds like Elgar… beautifully realised, performed with warmth and understanding, and sympathetically recorded. Same too with the Sea Pictures”
