EMI new releases Sir Adrian Boult

Sir Adrian Cedric Boult (8 April 1889 – 22 February 1983) was an English conductor, he was known for his championing of British music. Boult felt as comfortable in the recording studio as on the concert platform, making recordings throughout his career. From the mid-1960s until his retirement after his last sessions in 1978 he recorded extensively for EMI, the first set to unite all of Boult’s recordings for EMI of a composer he conducted and recorded throughout his long career. The oldest recording in this collection, being Sir Adrian’s first of his long association with Elgar, and about a tenth of the total collection is available on CD for the first time in this box set.
