Notes & Reviews:

Peter Wiegold's first portrait disc features the plaintive, pastoral Earth, receive an honoured guest, for cor anglais and strings, inspired by WH Auden's well known elegy for WB Yeats; the elemental Kalachakra for large ensemble, using Tibetan bells and brass, depicting the creation of the universe; and the bittersweet, Viennese Earth and Stars, commissioned for the 200th anniversary of Mozart's death and featuring four harmonicas to represent an ancient funeral band, dug up from the soil by future generations. It is completed by Wiegold's witty setting of Jo Shapcott's poems.
