British Conductor, British Band,British Music

Fennel was okay, but always very clinical. It is vital people listen more to people like Reynish conducting British Band classics, otherwise they will lose the subtleties of this music.

The closest to the composer's wishes...

This recording is a marvel - the conductor has made an effort to follow the original versions of the scores, not the published scores which are subject to some "modernized" instrumentation changes. The playing is more British than in the Classic Fennell/Cleveland Symphonic Winds recordings, and the slightly slower tempos than are often heard (the third movement "March" of the first Holst Suite is too often taken as a galop!) are refreshing. Not as cleanly precise as the Cleveland recordings, but for style and original instrumentaion I prefer this one. And the selection of works is superb.
