Dedicated to Kathryn Stott, Peter Maxwell Davies’s Piano Concerto is “one of the most attractive and immediately likeable piano concertos to appear for some time. Miss Stott’s performance must be regarded as definitive in its comprehensive grasp of the work’s multi-facted appeal.” (The Sunday Telegraph) The symphonic “Motet for Orchestra” Worldes Blis unites medieval plainchant with the emotional impact of early 20th century expressionism, having “an organic concentration that is unsurpassed in his output” (Gramophone).

“Stott gives a masculine performance [of the Concerto], not because that is her style but because this is a hard-boiled, quite aggressive work...the Royal Philharmonic give a tremendously impassioned account of both of these extraordinarily demanding works. Sound quality is very good too.”

Sunday Times

20th January 2013

“Davies’s early and very personal expressionist idiom finds its fullest rationale in [Worldes Blis]...Terror and grandeur, bleakness and vision are the informing paradoxes, and the work, superbly realised here, lives at the highest pitch of intensity.”
