Catalogue Number: 03M056
Description: Now we know that this series will continue after Richard Hickox's death with the estimable Andrew Davis at the helm. Here is the only modern recording of the 1915 Japanese Suite, an 11-minute work written during the composition of The Planets whose Japanese-ishness is debatable but which is nevertheless a charming piece of ballet music. Manchester Chamber Choir, BBC Philharmonic; Andrew Davis. SACD hybrid
