Notes and Editorial Reviews

Decca’s third album of music by Nico Muhly is a collection of his orchestral works including the concerto for electric violin, Seeing is Believing, with soloist Thomas Gould.

Influenced by the great minimalists, early English choral music and the latest electronic fusions, Nico Muhly has been called the poster boy of contemporary classical music.

Seeing Is Believing was written for the Aurora Orchestra ? a relatively new, young British ensemble who recorded it under contemporary music specialist Nicholas Collon.
