This is a large, old-fashioned orchestra with distinguished soloists like the late David Munrow on recorder. The warmth of the strings and fullness of the sound is glorious. Sir Adrian Boult modelled his interpretation on Steinbach's performance in the early 20th century which had profoundly affected him at the time. Sadly, this kind of lush playing is unheard of now. The dominance of the elite HIP movement denies the possibility of any other style or interpretation but its own.
I enjoyed this recording a great deal, it is incredibly beautiful. Maybe I'm just old-fasioned.
