Notes & Reviews:

Tippett never hesitated to go his own way. He was expelled from grammar school for attempting to convert his friends to atheism, espoused Trotskyism, and, in 1943, was jailed for three months as a conscientious objector. Tippett's time would come, however, and by the 1960s and 70s, thanks to younger interpreters such as Colin Davis, who were unfazed by the supposed technical and stylistic 'difficulty' of his music. He was knighted in 1966. This collection includes the much requested first release on CD of Davis' charming and beautifully realised Philips recording of the Suite in D for the birthday of Prince Charles as well as three virtuoso performances of music for strings with Marriner and the Academy.
