Review By Penguin Guide,January 2009

The following performance from the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra under Paul Daniel matches Davis’s earlier performance, and the leaner sound of the Bournemouth orchestra brings out the originality more, while the Naxos price gave this disc, with its first-rate sound, a competitive edge.

Review By Adrian Jack,Classic CD,May 2000

"Daniel draws magnificent Elgarian sounds from the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra, but he is even more aware than Davis of how far this score reflects the late Elgar, with Ghostly shadow and poignant regret and what he himself called 'stately sorrow' setting the nobler and grander pages in sharp relief. The slow movement is particularly moving; so is the very end of the work. But this is not posthumous Elgar: we may recall how, even in his last years, Elgar loved working with an orchestra, and the sheer enjoyment and delighted discovery felt by Daniel and his players in this performances is heart-warming. It is also stunningly played and sumptuously recorded."

Review By Harriet Smith,BBC Music Magazine,November 2002

"The Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra and Paul Daniel on Naxos have built on Payne's achievement and demonstrate convincingly that here is a work that can take a variety of interpretative approaches, revealing different facets of this endlessly fascinating work. And the fact that this recording has a further advantage of a budget price-tag is testament to the huge interest this work has generated."

Review By Bob Crimeen,Sunday Herald Sun (Australia),July 2000

"Klaus Heymann's Naxos label, the phenomenon of world recording in the last decade and a half of the 20th century, could not have chosen a more significant composition with which to celebrate its 2000th release in about 15 years.

"Too ill to complete his partially sketched Symphony No 3, Sir Edward Elgar specifically instructed it was not to be tinkered with-and perhaps should be burned. Thirty-eight years after Elgar's death in 1934, fellow English composer Anthony Payne's attention became focused on the tantalisingly incomplete symphony, the potential of which excited and challenged his creative powers.

"Many frustrations and 26 years later, Payne's elaboration of Elgar's glorious last symphonic statement came to life in London's Festival Hall. The exquisitely executed

"Bravo, Naxos."
