The Dream of Gerontius, a New York Times favorite!
In reviewing the best classical recordings of 2013, the New York Times critics chose The Dream of Gerontius as one of their favorites:
"It takes an impressive performance for Elgar to come alive for me, as he does in this recording by Edo de Waart and the Royal Flemish Philharmonic, both subtle and fiery. The First Symphony, in particular, burns under a surface sheen, and “The Dream of Gerontius” is intensely played and firmly sung."
