Notes & Reviews:

Live Music Now - a charitable organization that promotes the work of young artists - was founded in 1977 by Yehudi Menuhin. Live Music Now Scotland débuted in 1984, and 2014 marked its 30th anniversary. The charity has kept Menuhin's vision alive in ensuring that all members of society have access to the enriching experience of live music. This disc features some of Scotland's finest artists performing recent commissions by some of the country's brightest composing voices - William Sweeney, Eddie McGuire, Alasdair Nicolson and John Maxwell Geddes.
