Product Description

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Incredible composer!! Nov. 24 2012
By major king - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
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!!
