Notes & Reviews:

This is the first ever CD devoted to the work of Tansy Davies, a leading female composer who has worked extensively with high-profile ensembles such as the London Sinfonietta, the London Symphony Orchestra, and the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra. Davies offers a fresh, distinctive sound incorporating elements of funk, jazz, and folk into contemporary classical music. Includes performances from the Royal Academy of Music's Azalea ensemble, conducted by Christopher Austin.

"With Tansy Davies, contemporary street life pulses through particularly strongly...As a young teenager she played in rock bands. As an older teenager she discovered Boulez and Ligeti. Formal composition training followed. What emerged was music that breaks down categories. Abrasive and abrupt, it's both classical and non-classical, infused with funk and alternative rock, and it fills this exuberant new CD." -The Times
