Naxos December 2014 Disc of the Month

'The Disc of the Month on Naxos this December is a collection of several significant recordings of the music of John McCabe, none of which has appeared before on CD. The First Symphony, heard here in its only recording to date by the London Philharmonic Orchestra under John Shashall, is a work of striking emotional directness and explosive energy. The Fantasy on a Theme of Liszt is a consummately crafted work, performed with masterful skill by McCabe at the piano. Scored for very large orchestra, Tuning develops layers of texture and sonority of overwhelming richness in which the National Youth Orchestra of Scotland revel - this is the only recording of John McCabe as conductor.' - Select Music and Video Distribution Ltd
