Penguin Guide, January 2009

Vaughan William’s abrasive Fourth Symphony (which has much in common with the Hickox version) emergies in Paul Daniel’s powerful performance as one of the most vital of Vaughan Williams’s works at once chilling and lyrical in its forward thrust. The Symphony is superbly contrasted with a masterpiece from the 1920, the visionary piece, Flos camp,i for viola and orchestra, inspired over its six sections by the Song of Solomon, with Paul Silverthorne a superb soloist. Covering the full range of Vaughan Williams’s achievement, the disc also includes the Norfolk Rhapsody 1 of 1906, representing the composer’s early pastoral style at its most attractive.

Paul Daniel and the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra leave one with little room for doubt about either the strength of the creative urge behind the Fourth [symphony] or the composer's mastery of his new-found 'modernism'.

"Daniel is a superb conductor of early-20th-century British music, and he does a fine job, too, with the haunting choral-orchestral Flos Campi suite and the first Norfolk Rhapsody."
