Notes & Reviews:

The music of Buxton Orr (b. Glasgow, 1924), was hardly over-exposed during his lifetime but has encountered even more neglect since his death in 1997. This CD takes a step in the right direction, presenting Orr's mildly modernist, elegant and honest music in first recordings of four of his chamber works for strings.
