Notes & Reviews:

"The most substantial work here is the rather Stravinskian Piano Concerto, written for the 1995 Proms; the origins of most of the others date farther back in Kevin Volans's career... It's a fascinating collection, and a fine introduction to one of the most original compositional voices of our time." ***** -BBC Music
