Press Reviews

"Sir Andrew Davis's fine performance of the Enigma Variations, with Nimrod hushed, slow and steady, was recorded in the atmospheric surroundings of Worcester Cathedral, where Elgar said everyone should hear his music. Davis introduces a highly enjoyable documentary about the work and 'the friends pictured within'. In the documentary he suggests that each variation, as well as reflecting the character of a particular friend, reveals much about Elgar himself, 'like an actor playing many roles'." (The Penguin Guide)

"Andrew Davis presents the documentary in an engaging style, giving an overview of the variations, as well as homing in on several of them. ?there's a lot of information presented in an unassuming way, and, for anyone coming to this masterpiece for the first time, it's a good way. " (BBC Music Magazine ???)

"Sir Andrew Davis's warmly committed performance of the Enigma Variations, atmospherically recorded in Worcester Cathedral, introduces a highly enjoyable documentary about the work and the 'friends pictured within'" (Gramophone)
