Notes & Reviews:

A wide cross-section of Maxwell Davies's work is represented on this programme, part of the ongoing Naxos reissues of recordings fist released by Collins Classics. The two concertos are performed by their dedicatees.

MusicWeb International, 23rd April 2013
Conducting three excellent orchestras across an eight-year period, the Master of the Queen's Music makes sure his is done the right way for posterity.

Sunday Times, 10th February 2013
This latest Naxos release of Davies recordings from the defunct Collin Classics catalogue is rich in concertos. The one for piccolo (1996) is itself diminutive: three little movements that capture the instrument's spirit quite uncannily, particularly the pizzicato-haunted central adagio...Five Klee Pictures are among the most felicitous of Davies's works for children.

American Record Guide, July/August 2013
These recordings are all reissues from the Collins label. The pieces hold up very well. The complex textures of the music repay close attention, making the release particularly welcome. Collins's sonics were always very fine, and the performances are first-rate - this disc is a must-have, as are all the other Naxos Collins reissues of Davies.
