Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

'A most powerful experience: concentrated, awesome, and as mysterious as some astronomical phenomenon. Played superbly, and no less superbly recorded' (The Penguin Guide to Compact Discs)

'Awesome' (The Independent)

'As hypnotic as the star-filled night sky ... so utterly absorbing is this symphony that I have hardly given a thought to the performance or the recording ... which is surely the best possible tribute to all concerned' (Gramophone)
