The recordings presented in this 10CD set feature the great British conductor Sir Adrian Boult and come from the period between 1945 and 1956. The orchestras are the London Symphony, the BBC Symphony, the Philharmonic Promenade, the London Philharmonic and the Philharmonia, and the artists include legendary soloists such as Yehudi Menuhin, Friedrich Gulda, Pablo Casals, Annie Fischer and Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau. Much of the music is of British origin with major works by Elgar, Vaughan-Williams, and Holst, but the set also features Boult conducting music by Busoni, Mozart, Paganini, Schumann, and Chopin.

In 1930 the eminent British conductor Sir Adrian Boult was asked by the BBC to form a new orchestra. Under his direction, the BBC Symphony Orchestra soon rose to prominence, and in 1942 Boult was asked to assume responsibility for the BBC Promenade Concerts. He presided over the Proms until 1950.
