“Jolly Cotswolds Symphony… shows the Holstian flair for colourful orchestration and has folksy influence….Scherzo an attractive dance rhythm…..and finale a striking tune in 6/4…in the Perfect Fool we hear the composer at his most inspired …and like the whole programme, it is most vividly played and recorded… remarkable how well this fine Munich orchestra takes to English music” (Penguin Guide 3 stars)
