Notes & Reviews:

NMC is pleased to announce another release in its successful Ancora series of re-issues. The composers and performers on this release make it an important re-issue for 2006, which marks the 70th birthday of both these well-known British composers. The two composers are firm friends, having first met as students at the Royal Academy of Music in 1955, but could not be more different in ways musically. Whilst Maw has written a succession of richly conceived large-scale works, in a style which he achieved after rejecting the avant-garde music Bennett has been involved with, the latter now has a dazzlingly diverse career encompassing film scores, jazz pieces and as a cabaret performer as well as the serial concert music which he started writing after studies with Boulez in Paris.
