Notes & Reviews:

Sir Peter Maxwell Davies's passionate Sixth Symphony is dedicated to the memory of the writer George Mackay Brown, with the 'very special musical virtuosity' of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra in mind. It is one of his most beautifully expressive works and, whilst not untroubled, reaches moments of serene beauty. Composed for the 50th anniversary of the founding of the United Nations, Time and the Raven is a brilliant and exciting collage, whilst few contemporary works enjoy such popularity as the magical An Orkney Wedding with Sunrise

American Record Guide, March / April 2013
Peter Maxwell Davies has a penchant for the bombastic. His command of the power of an orchestra is impressive, as is his keen ability to draw out orchestrational pairings that draw the listener's attention.
