      Elgar: The Starlight Express, Op 78: Act I (20:29)

      Simon Callow, narrator; Roderick Williams, baritone; Scottish Chamber Orchestra / Sir Andrew Davis

      This fairytale melodrama was adapted from a book by Algernon Blackwood for a theater production staged during World War I with music by Elgar. Based on a new score which has been adapted by Sir Andrew Davis, this is the most comprehensive recorded version to date. The two-disc set includes the incidental music with narration by Simon Callow and an extended suite of orchestral movements and songs.
