Notes & Reviews:

Affirming Michael Nyman's status as an innovator in orchestral music, these three concertos demonstrate a bold reinterpretation of musical traditions. This collection includes Nyman's Double Concerto for Saxophone, Cello and Orchestra, and the virtuosic Concerto for Harpsichord and Strings, both of which illustrate Nyman's inventive approach to timbre. The album concludes with the Concerto for Trombone and Orchestra, a dramatic and tumultuous conflict between instruments.
