Notes & Reviews:

Here's an interesting concept - a major early work by one of Wales' most important composers written the same year the second composer, one of his pupils, was born. William Mathias wrote in an immediately arresting style, melding the sound worlds of both Britten and Stravinsky, and his many orchestral works, including his truly exciting Symphonies and Third Piano Concerto, have developed an enthusiastic following among collectors. As mentioned, John Pickard studied with Mathias and later with Louis Andriessen. His music has been widely praised for its large-scale architectural sense and bold handling of an extended tonal idiom.
