Notes & Reviews:

Last year marked the 150th anniversary of the birth of Frederick Delius, and SOMM joined his many admirers in paying tribute to the composer, who holds a very special place in the history of 20th century music. The first volume of Delius' orchestral music, transcribed for two pianos, provided a fresh and enjoyable slant on Delius' orchestral music. It also marked the beginning of an exciting collaboration between SOMM and the duo of Simon Callaghan and Hiroaki Takenouchi. Their deeply felt performances not only transcend the limitations of the instruments, they also allow many more of the inner strands of the orchestral textures to be heard with greater clarity.
