SIR PETER MAXWELL DAVIES Symphony No.6

SIR PETER MAXWELL DAVIES Violin Concerto No.1

SIR PETER MAXWELL DAVIES An Orkney Wedding, with Sunrise

A concert devoted to music by one of Britainís most dynamic composers, Sir Peter Maxwell Davies, who regularly works with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, and who collaborated with the Orchestra in choosing this programme. Sir Peter Maxwell Davies will introduce each of his pieces, giving the audience a fantastic insight into his compositional practices.

The Sixth Symphony was written with members of the Royal Philharmonic in mind, and was premiŤred by the RPO. Maxwell Daviesí Violin Concerto combines enthralling originality with the influence of Scottish folk music. Of the irrepressible An Orkney Wedding, with Sunrise, Gramophone wrote: 'Davies is a master storyteller in this vividly detailed tone-painting of a rustic, often raucous, all-night wedding celebration.' The Independent added: 'It brought the house down.'
