Notes & Reviews:

The third volume of James MacMillan's recordings with the Netherlands Radio Chamber Philharmonic on Challenge Classics is devoted to works for chamber orchestra with soloists. James MacMillan is one of today's most successful living composers, and is also internationally active as a conductor. His musical language is flooded with influences from his Scottish heritage, Catholic faith, social conscience, and close connection with Celtic folk music, all blended with influences from Far Eastern, Scandinavian, and Eastern European music.

Since he won the Echo Klassik Award for his EMI debut in 2006, Linus Roth has made a name for himself as one of the most interesting violinists of his generation, and as a champion of wrongly forgotten works. Cellist Julius Berger has been a permanent fixture of the music scene for more than 30 years, in worldwide demand as a soloist and chamber musician. Dutch clarinetist Lars Wouters van den Oudenweijer studied at the Juilliard School for Music in New York with clarinetist Charles Neidich. He has played in major venues such as Carnegie Hall, Wigmore Hall, Musik Verein, and more.
