The solo pairing of his Concerto No. 5 was inspired by Mozart’s Sinfonia Concertante for violin and viola, the soloists appearing in dialogue over intricate harmonies and dense string textures. Illuminated by Peter Bruegel’s painting Children’s Games, the distinctively scored Concerto No. 6 has an uninhibited lightness and transparency. Strathclyde Concerto No. 2 can be heard on Naxos 8573017, Nos. 3 and 4 on 8572353.

“It is music of the late twentieth century which at the same time is far removed from the composer’s enfant terrible phase of the 1960s and 1970s...They are a most valuable restoration to the catalogue.”
