The first performance at the Proms-three weeks before the composer's death-by the BBC Symphony Orchestra under Sir Malcolm Sargent did the symphony no favours. It is stodgy and under-powered.

Stokowski's US premiere of the work was much more, of course, was Boult's recording made on the day of RVW's death.
