Format: Audio CD
Some may scoff at the music of the 'Faber' composers, but you can't deny that their works are generally exquisitely crafted and that they offer a brilliantly exciting soudworld, even for the casual listener. Knussen is sometimes compared to Ravel as a composer, and the works on this CD certainly reveal the similarity, in their (tiny) size and in their orchestration (particularly the use of small percussion instruments). The horn concerto, written for the brilliant Barry Tuckwell, is full of mesmerising sounds, and together with 'The Way to Castle Yonder', makes this a thoroughly accessible disk, while the whole CD provides plenty of stimulation for any more probing listener. Fantastic performances all round, as can be expected of Knussen's superb ensemble and soloists.(Once you've heard this, try Knussen's 'Orchestral and Vocal works' for something a bit more meaty.)

This is music of the highest quality. It's so beautiful and ravishing that just recalling parts of it in my mind makes me feel all warm inside. An absolute must-have.
