Notes & Reviews:

This superb release marks the beginning of a new, exclusive relationship between Chandos and the Iceland Symphony Orchestra conducted by Rumon Gamba. It includes the world premiere recordings of the "Our Man in Havana" suite and "Concerto Grosso", and the only available recording of the overture "Santiago de Espada."

International Record Review
The music here is really quite wonderful and is played with palpable affection and devotion and is recordied with clarity and dynamism... . This release confirms him as a rather special composer'
