Notes & Reviews:

The first CD release featuring music from the BBC National Orchestra of Wales' inaugural Composer in Residence, Guto Pryderi Puw. This dual-language release in both Welsh and English features a range of orchestral works inspired by stories and landscapes of Wales. Jav van Steen conducts.

Gramophone Magazine, September 2014
Among Welsh composers o the younger generation, Guto Pryderi Puw (b.1971) looks likely to achieve real prominence. This disc of his orchestral music confirms an assured mastery of the medium...The steadfast advocacy of the BBC NOW and Jac van Steen is abetted by the immediacy of Cardiff's Hoddinott Hall.

The Guardian, 22nd May 2014
Presented with great clarity by the orchestra under Jac van Steen, they show Puw revelling in the opportunity to write challengingly for such a proficient band, though at times that enthusiasm does get the better of him...[Reservoirs] is the most impressive, most achieved work here.

American Record Guide, November/December 2014
The concert is professional and convincing. The orchestra renders Puw's scores with deft technique, haunting backdrops, and thunderous power, giving each one the chance to make an impression.
