Notes & Reviews:

Grainger was an inveterate innovator and experimenter in music and the kaleidoscopic aspects of his compositional creativity in highly imaginative works often with unprecedented rhythms, harmonies, and scorings are presented in this program which features a number of first recordings. The program includes Grainger's spectacular The Warriors for large orchestra and ten percussionists in a no-holds-barred performance sure to please audiophiles and fans of 10th century music alike.
