Notes and Editorial Reviews

LSO Live presents world premiere recordings of Tenth Symphonies by two modern composers of most significant stature, Sir Peter Maxwell Davies and Sir Andrzej Panufnik. Commissioned by the LSO and described by Sir Peter as ‘the wildest music I’ve ever written’, the symphony tells the story of 17th c. architect Francesco Borromini, who suffered much criticism for his idiosyncratic buildings and tragically committed suicide. Borromini’s architectural and mathematical principles permeate this work that speaks of creativity, life, death and renewal. As with many of his other works, Panufnik’s succinct offering is influenced by geometry – the Fibonacci series in this instance. Panufnik’s various group combinations allow each instrumental grouping Read more to convey humanity and an intense, profound musicianship. Read less
