‘A Splendid Collection’

We are delighted to announce the release of our new James MacMillan CD – Visions of a November Spring – on Delphian Records, which includes three premiere recordings.

Visions

 

Spanning his career from 1982 to 2011, the disc provides three snapshots of MacMillan’s evolving style: an intriguing tissue of Wagnerian referentiality; a burst of youthful energy with touches of the visionary; and the sovereign integration of folk and discursive elements in String Quartet No 3 – one of three world premiere recordings on this disc. A moving short tribute, For Sonny (another world premiere), shows another side to this ceaselessly inventive composer’s output.
