Customer Reviews and Comments
This is accessible contemporary music of the best kind. As one of the other reviews says with the tragic death earlier in the year of Russell Peck this disc devoted to his music is likely to stand as one of his enduring memorials. The titles of the works say it all - "The Upward Stream" is characterised as swimming against the flow and this sense of struggle to a triumphant conclusion is brilliantly realised. "The Glory and the Grandeur" is another spectacular work brilliantly performed and well recorded too. Hopefully this is the kind of music that should be re-recorded & released on the Naxos American Classics series - there is an intriguing concerto for 4 cellos listed as well as a timpani concerto. Come on Naxos - you know you want to!!
