Originally written for children, the Five Klee Pictures are anything but childish. Recorded by its dedicatee, Stewart McIlwham, the remarkable Piccolo Concerto displays both the lyrical and mercurial sides of the instrument. Also performed by its dedicatee, John Wallace, the powerful Trumpet Concerto here receives its definitive recording. Maxwell’s Reel, with Northern Lights inhabits worlds comparable with the popular An Orkney Wedding with Sunrise (8572352).

“This latest Naxos release of Davies recordings from the defunct Collin Classics catalogue is rich in concertos. The one for piccolo (1996) is itself diminutive: three little movements that capture the instrument’s spirit quite uncannily, particularly the pizzicato-haunted central adagio...Five Klee Pictures are among the most felicitous of Davies’s works for children”

“Conducting three excellent orchestras across an eight-year period, the Master of the Queen's Music makes sure his is done the right way for posterity.”
