Review By Penguin Guide,January 2009

David Lloyd-Jones’s reading with the Royal Scottish National Orchestra is even finer than Elder’s, more spontaneous-sounding if not always quite so polished. Where Lloyd-Jones scores is in bringing out the contrasted character of each movement, starting with an account of Mars which in its urgency and menace contrasts strongly with the strangely relaxed view of Elder. Mercury is lighter and wittier, Jupiter jollier and Uranus more full of flair. Where Elder has for coupling a rare late work, Lloyd-Jones and Matthews have unearthed a very early work of Holst’s that was never performed, a Scena to a text by Walt Whitman, which may reveal little of Holst’s mature style, but which is colourful and atmospheric and well worth hearing.

Review By CNNMoney,March 2002

"English composer Colin Matthews saw fit to provide the galactic update several years ago with an eighth movement, Pluto, the Renewer, which has been performed in Scotland a couple of times and is available on this disc featuring the Royal Scottish National Orchetra and David Lloyd-Jones... More intriguing is the first-ever recording of Holst's The Mystic Trumpter, and opulent Wagnerian scenes for soprano and orchestra, seductively sung by Clare Rutter."
