Notes & Reviews:

"On this Lyrita disc at least, Elizabeth Maconchy comes off like a genuinely great composer. The supple strength of her Overture, Proud Themes from 1952, the rugged integrity of her Symphony for Double String Orchestra from 1953, the lyrical austerity of her Serenata Concertante for Violin and Orchestra from 1962 and especially the sublime objectivity of her late Music for String from 1983 all speak with a highly articulate and deeply individualistic voice that sounds nothing like her teacher Vaughan Williams and even less like any other English composer. Indeed, every work here sounds like nothing so much as great music -- superbly crafted, seriously considered, intensely expressive and passionate." -All Music
