I am surprised that Brian Wilson did not mention that Andrew Davis has recorded The Music Makers before. He recorded it in the 1990s for Teldec, and this was later issued by Warner in a 5 CD boxed set of Elgar's orchestral works (the two discs containing the symphonies suffering somewhat from veiled sound in the reissue). This recording of The Music Makers has the same dark sound as Davis's recording of the Vaughan Williams 6th symphony.
