This is a welcome repackaging of works previously released with RVW symphonies. These are warm, radiant performances in glorious sound. In such a quality programme, space permits mention of only Howard Shelley’s brilliant reading of the rugged Piano Concerto with its haunting Romanza, the engaging Tuba Concerto, the immaculate string playing in the Concerto Grosso and a truly exciting Toward the Unknown Region.
