Review By Penguin Guide,January 2009

…what Lloyd-Jones has done with the Naxos version is to go back to Walton’s original with only a modest expansion of forces, and the result in his brilliant performance, helped by refined recording, is greater transparency. Far from seeming thin the impact is sharper the in the earlier, more opulent version. This is vintage Walton, consistently fresh, defying any unevenness of invention, culminating in a radiant Passacaglia. One hopes the success of the disc will encourage the revival of the original ballet with its Piper sets.

Review By Richard Wigmore,The Daily Telegraph (Australia),June 2002

"This brilliant atmospheric performance from the English Northern Philharmonia under David Lloyd-Jones is all the more welcome for presenting the work for the first time in the composer's original orchestration...A colorful addition to the centenary junketings."
