Notes & Reviews:

"'The Berserking', a piano concerto dating from 1989 is, according tothe composer, a study in 'misdirected energy' and the first movement is pervaded by 'something pathetically masculine'. 'Britannia' is an eventful tour through familiar and familiar-sounding tunes that collide and morph and chase each other in a gaudy, exhilarating 'melee'." - Barry Witherden, Gramophone

The Gramophone
Energy and wit abound in music with plenty of stories to tell.
