Celebrating their Golden Jubilee this year, the Winnipeg SO under Bramwell Tovey (their Artistic Director since 1989) turn in an admirably trim set of performances. Concertmaster Gwen Hoebig makes an impressively secure, genuinely touching soloist in The lark ascending (like Cockaigne, a distinctively intimate, tender conception); indeed, Tovey conducts with unassuming sympathy and gentle perception throughout – though I must say I don’t personally care for those schmaltzy violin slides in “Knightsbridge”. Nicely balanced sound.'
