ARTHUR SULLIVAN (1842-1900): Pineapple Poll (arr. Charles Mackerras [b.1925]), Symphony in E "Irish".
Catalogue Number: 10J049
Description: Nice to have a new version of the ballet put together in 1951 from various Gilbert and Sullivan operetta tunes (the booklet even reproduces Mackerras' original 1962 EMI LP liner notes!), while adding the 35-minute youthful symphony with its echoes of Schubert and Mendelssohn makes for a very attractive 78 minutes of music. Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra; David-Lloyd Jones.
