Maxwell Davies is one of the most prominent and revered names in contemporary music.  On this CD we present chamber music written between 1952 and 1987 performed by  the Kreutzer Quartet and renowned soloists.

“This is a most worthwhile and imaginatively programmed disc, with fine music expertly played.”


 

Clarinet & Saxophone

“This programme gives a remarkably clear picture of Peter Maxwell Davies’s art. Guy Cowley and Ian Pace’s playing is strong and well controlled. All the playing, indeed, is excellent - the Kreutzer Quartet’s pure tone and fine intonation are great assets in the pared-down idiom of the two Little Quartets. With realistic, sensitive recording, this is a must for anyone interested in Maxwell Davies.”

Duncan Druce

Gramophone

“Recorded with an ideal combination of spaciousness and clarity, and with a booklet note combining overview and observations from the players, this is a timely disc - and not just on account of Maxwell Davies’s somewhat depleted representation in the current catalogue.”

Graham Simpson
