Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

"...The three-movement 'Sinfonia intrepida'...[is] a big, bold, dark, deeply serious work, avowedly in the line of Mahler, Shostakovich and Britten: tonally ambiguous, generally slow-moving, full of strident chordal outbursts, gaunt and gawky unisons, six-horn recitatives...clangorous gong-strokes...The performance, an excellent one, endows it with maximum conviction; the recording too is very vivid." **** -MacDonald, BBC
