Boult was very closely associated with Elgar’s music throughout his career and recorded the Second Symphony five times. This live Proms performance recorded in stereo from 1977 “shows Boult in his late 80s working with the passion and energy of a much younger man” (Martin Cotton). His relatively fast tempi are closer to his first recording made in 1944 with the BBCSO. The Overture and Venusberg music from Wagner’s Tannhäuser are a new addition to the Boult discography and come from a live studio performance in stereo from the Maida Vale Studios in 1968. These are world premier recordings.
