BBC National Orchestra of Wales
Richard Hickox, conductor

“The SACD recording is spectacular; you really appreciate the sharpness of articulation of the Cardiff players. Hickox's control… climaxes is masterly. In the Scherzo the articulation of the violins and the sharpness of attack is thrilling. In the great melodies of the slow movement Hickox tenderly brings out a songlike quality, making others seem a little studied. The delicate pianissimo as the third theme enters... is breathtaking.”
Gramophone Magazine, August 2007

“Hickox… offers an attractive, enterprising coupling… and his account of the Symphony, caught in state-of-the-art sonics, is good, in places excellent.”
BBC Music Magazine, July 2007
