Notes & Reviews:

These live recordings of three modern classics reflect the London Philharmonic Orchestra's strong commitment to contemporary composers. The first two are breakthrough works from 1990 by British composers Thomas Ades and James MacMillian, the third a spectacular concerto by Jennifer Higdon, one of America's most successful composers. Marin Alsop and Colin Currie give impassioned performances revealing the full range of emotions contained in the music.
