Notes and Editorial Reviews

A wide cross-section of Sir Peter Maxwell Davies's orchestral work is represented in this programme. Originally written for children, the Five Klee Pictures are anything but childish. Recorded by its dedicatee, Stewart McIlwham, the remarkable Piccolo Concerto displays both the lyrical and mercurial sides of the instrument. Also performed by its dedicatee, John Wallace, the powerful Trumpet Concerto here receives its definitive recording. Maxwell's Reel, with Northern Lights inhabits worlds comparable with the popular An Orkney Wedding with Sunrise.
