“Adrian Brown and his Bromley Symphony Orchestra gave one of the finest performances [of Sibelius Symphony No. 4] I have heard in a long time. Attention to detail was superb; the opening cello melody maintained its audible course within the body of the lower strings when it is often engulfed in other performances. Little markings like the Tranquillo in the scherzo were meticulously observed thus adding interest to an absorbing and comprehensive view of a master work that remains almost totally neglected in the mainstream of our musical life in Great Britain…This is difficult music to comprehend and to play but the performance was a triumph for all concerned.”
