    Originally released on Albany and Olympia, this disc has been regularly sought after so we are pleased to be able to offer it again. As well as the phenomenal Planets for two pianos (despite views to the contrary this was Holst's original version, predating the orchestral score and the later piano duet transcription), the disc includes Holst's own two-piano version of the Elegy from his Symphony in F, and Elgar's own arrangement for two pianos of his Serenade in E minor; also we have two little known but exquisite miniatures from Frank Bury and Edgar Bainton, almost forgotten figures in early 20th century English music.
    CD programme:
    Edward Elgar:
    Serenade in E minor, Op. 20
    Frank Bury:
    Prelude and Fugue in E flat major
    Edgar Bainton:
    Miniature Suite
    Gustav Holst:
    The Planets
    Elegy in Memoriam William Morris (adapted from The Cotswolds Symphony)
