Maxwell Davies, P.: Piano Concerto / Worldes Blis (Stott, Royal Philharmonic, Maxwell Davies)
Naxos: 8.572357

Dedicated to Kathryn Stott, Peter Maxwell Daveis's Piano Concerto is "one of the most attractive and immediately likeable piano concertos to appear for some time. Miss Stott's performance must be regarded as definitive in its comprehensive grasp of the work's multi-faceted appeal." (The Sunday Telegraph)

The symphonic "Motet for Orchestra" Worldes Blis unites medieval plainchant with the emotional impact of early 20th century expressionism, having "an organic concentration that is unsurpassed in his output." (Gramophone)
