Notes & Reviews:

"While it is clear in practically every note of this disc that the Kiwi composer Douglas Lilburn studied with Ralph Vaughan Williams, that's no bad thing. And James Judd and his New Zealand forces find an openness and an energy in the music that evokes all the majesty of that country's landscape." -Gramophone (Editor's Choice selection)



Reviews

Lilburn: A Song of Islands, etc / Judd, New Zealand SO
If listening to this first time and blind-folded, I would think I was hearing some lost Sibelius. And really good Sibelius at that! Only one piece showed a more modern side. Lovely music. This is one of the best engineered CDs ever from NAXOS. A great demo disc to show off a system.
