 Maxwell Davies, Peter


Sir Peter Maxwell Davies’s passionate Sixth Symphony is dedicated to the memory of the writer George Mackay Brown, with the ‘very special musical virtuosity’ of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra in mind. It is one of his most beautifully expressive works and, whilst not untroubled, reaches moments of serene beauty. Composed for the 50th anniversary of the founding of the United Nations, Time and the Raven is a brilliant and exciting collage, whilst few contemporary works enjoy such popularity as the magical An Orkney Wedding with Sunrise.
 

 "... Highly recommended for this [An Orkney Wedding with Sunrise], and the overture, but especially for the extraordinary symphony."

Ronald E Grames - Fanfare - July/August 2013


                     ***** - Exceptional

Massimo Viazzo - Musica magazine - April 2013

 

 


"...the symphony comes across in fine sound and the performance, led by the composer,is obviously authoritative. The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra responds with utter commitment to Maxwell Davies’ baton, their playing sounding accurate and beyond any serious criticism.Time and the Raven ... makes a logical filler here ...it is light and colorfully orchestrated and quite optimistic. An Orkney Wedding with Sunrise…the sound is vivid and the performances of both fillers are splendid. This is a highly rewarding disc." 
 
Robert Cummings - ClassicalNet - February 2013
 

"...An excellent  disc, then, in fact one of the finest in the Maxwell Davies series to date."
 
Lynn René Bayley - Fanfare - March/April 2013

     **** - Good
