Notes & Reviews:

This release contains world premiere recordings of works by established and upcoming composers, from Malcolm Arnold to 17-year-old Salomon Cuellar. Superb playing by the passionate and disciplined Isis Ensemble, featuring many of the UK’s finest musicians under Jacques Cohen (director) and Susanne Stanzeleit (leader). Detailed and elegant inlay notes, written by Jacques Cohen, describe the musical origins and character of each work.
