“performances are robust, yet elegant … both slow movements are beautifully shaped … in the last movement of the ‘Oxford’ the dancing violins are a special delight in one of the composer’s most infectious finales” (Penguin Guide) “Finally, a lovely modern recording, most naturally balanced … the ‘Paris’ Symphony glowingly played by the English Sinfonia. Groves’s tempos are exactly right” (Gramophone)
