Sir Peter Maxwell Davies is one of the most exciting and provocative composers at work in the world today. His Eight Songs for a Mad King set the dizzying pace for Britain’s 1960s avant-garde, and the recent Naxos Quartets bear witness to his continuing innovative spirit. This portrait comes with 2½ hours of music from O Magnum Mysterium, Eight Songs for a Mad King, Worldes Blis, The Doctor of Myddfai, Symphony No. 6, Cross Lane Fair, Commemoration Sixty, Naxos Quartet No. 6 and several other significant, strikingly original works.
