This recording was made after the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra’s end-of-season concert, described by The Times as “a spectacular finale… A knockout dramatic punch; feverishly beautiful orchestral playing; two characters, the Duke and his new wife Judith, tactile and writhing, deeply felt… Alsop inspired the Bournemouth players to excel”.
