Two of the finest works for string orchestra in the repertoire - Parry's English Suite and Lady Radnor's Suite...

...oh, and some tit-bits by Elgar as a make-weight.

Agreed again!

Uncanny, eh? Parry's writing for strings is second to none, neither Dvorak nor Tchaikovsky. He was a British pioneer of the difficult genre of string orchestra - Elgar and RVW followed suit with wonderful works. Also Bantock...
