Notes & Reviews:

Matthew Taylor's music (b. 1964) seeks to give the symphonic tradition continued relevance in the modern age. These three works, composed consecutively between 1993 and 1996, demonstrate Taylor's concern with the essentials of symphonic thought in the long-term generation and deployment of energy, using a language which stems from the legacy of Sibelius and Nielsen, with points of reference to Robert Simpson, Vagn Holmboe, and Michael Tippett. "The three works on this enterprising release reveal a composer of integrity and intelligence music of quality and genuine staying power well worth exploring." - Gramophone
