“In Knussen's supremely authoritative interpretation, the sound quality has been meticulously managed in order to help the listener trace the gradually emerging and steadily unfolding arcs of eloquent melody. It takes time to appreciate how Symphonia's extraordinary variety of pace contributes to the music's melodic and harmonic coherence.

Decca and DG’s ‘20C’ series is devoted to the compositional high points of the 20th Century - the defining orchestral masterpieces of the era.

It presents a comprehensive overview of music from an often-turbulent era to provide the most balanced overview of 20th century composition ever created.

The latter half of the twentieth century was a period of turbulence – both artistically and culturally – and produced a wealth of provocative and often divisive music; much of which we are still coming to terms with, and much which has hugely influenced today’s pop culture and its music. 20C – Shaping the Century Volume II surveys a musical landscape of what are sometimes disparate compositional styles, and makes the repertoire accessible to everyone with an interest in this rich musical heritage.

VOLUME TWO 1950-2000

Decca’s and DG’s exceptionally-balanced survey of the music of twentieth century features one masterpiece from each featured composer, five composers per decade.

Together this presents iconic works by 25 of the most iconic composers of the years 1950-2000.

Each of the CDs includes booklet notes by leading musicologist and writer Nigel Simeone, who also curated the ‘20C’ project, which contextualise the composers and the works, as well as a timeline of 20th-Century musical premieres.
