Some time in the mid-1990s came the dream phone call – Robert Cohan, American choreographer and founder of The London Contemporary Dance Company, asking if I would be interested in composing a score for a full length ballet on the subject of Aladdin, for what is the traditional Nutcracker slot, Autumn and Winter. Would I? – You bet! … I enjoyed revisiting the score five years after the first successful season by Scottish Ballet in 2000 and sincerely applaud the magnificent performance by the new and exciting Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra. (Carl Davis, 2006)


Review By Penguin Guide,January 2009

The music is colourful and melodic, somewhat after the style of film music, but it certainly doesn’t lack inventive imagination. It is very well played by the Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra and the composer ensures plenty of sparkle and expressive warmth. Very good recording, too. We hope there may be a DVD, which would be even more enjoyable.
