Brian Wilson
MusicWeb International, January 2011

I hadn’t associated Georg Tintner with Delius—or, for that matter, with some of the other music offered by Naxos in this commemorative series. If we think that only British conductors can do credit to British music, that is to forget Monteux’s Elgar…or Karajan’s Holst…. Tintner’s Delius is not quite in that category, but I have to say that he makes a very credible and creditable case for all the music on this generously-timed album. If you’d played it to me blind and told me that these were lost Beecham, Barbirolli or Handley recordings, I might well have believed you. It’s not as if there was much competition in the Violin Concerto—notably from Pougnet and Beecham (1949) on Naxos Historical (8.111006)—though it’s not in the same league as the concertos for Cello and Violin and Cello, it’s well worth hearing. The recording, made in a church in Halifax, Nova Scotia, offers a believable sound-picture.
