British Composers Series

The familiar LSO sound of the seventies: rich, expressive and - for the most part - impeccably disciplined, is one of the main attractions of this disc. The analogue recordings give very little away to many modern digital ones, and there is certainly no compromise in terms of detail.

This is a recording to be cherished, whether as an old friend or a new discovery matters not. Previn’s characterisations in the ‘Enigma’ variations populate your room with real people – fellows eccentric and heroic, and fragrant females of charm and sophistication. One finds oneself wishing one had friends like these.
