“From the iconic 1932 photo on the steps of Abbey Road with the Composer himself, Menuhin became associated all his long life with performances and recordings of Elgar” (J.Murray) “Menuhin’s account of the Variations… is the interpretation of a musician who has lived long with this music and loves it. He …takes immense care (to) direct the listener to yet another facet of this inexhaustibly fascinating score. Nothing ‘routine’ here, nor in the RPO’s playing.” (Michael Kennedy)
