Additional Information

Peter Maxwell Davies's Symphony No. 3 is the product of symmetry
and proportion based on the principles of Renaissance architecture. It
is also a dynamic and thrilling seascape, one that both invokes medieval
chant and summons up the violent buffeting of the waves, and the stirring
cliff-face full of nesting birds. The dual inspirations of proportion and the
natural world are seamlessly coalesced, and the Symphony teems with
evocative sounds and brooding passages both expansive and timedefying
in their beauty. Cross Lane Fair is a lighter work, scored for
Northumbrian pipes, bodhran (an Irish drum) and chamber orchestra,
inspired by the memories of a fairground that Maxwell Davies visited as
a child. Universally acknowledged as one of the foremost composers of our
time, Sir Peter Maxwell Davies has made a significant contribution to
musical history through his wide-ranging and prolific output. He lives in
the Orkney Islands off the north coast of Scotland, where he writes most
of his music.

I just ordered my copy of bbc philharmonic's perfomance of the third symphony directed by the artist who's composition "an orkney wedding with sunrise" truly captured my attention when it was played in boston (1988) under john williams (I recorded this on my cassette via wcrb radio at the time) the symphony is well,purley imaginable and fastinating!!! Naxos did a great job reissuing this and other symphonies and works by Maxwell Davies the BBC also should recieve equal credit .. keep up the outstanding work!!
