Farewell to Stromness Peter Maxwell Davies

Farewell to Stromness Peter Maxwell Davies Harp solo by Lauren Scott

A beautiful composition about a beautiful place in Scotland that was untouched by 'development' at the time ... unlikely to remain so. The same could be said for us.

Farewell to Stromness Peter Maxwell Davies Piano



 BBC excerpt: Sir Peter Maxwell Davies, holder since 2004 of the ancient royal post of Master of The Queen's Music, is one of Britain's foremost and most prolific composers. His reputation in the UK (and especially abroad) puts him at the top of a distinguished international list of contemporary composers who have helped to re-define what 'avant-garde' actually means in the 21st century.
