Format: Audio CD
Unlike many other contemporary classical composers, James MacMillan writes music that is actually accessible to the average classical music lover. And he doesn't sell us short by making things too easy. For example, don't be put off by the dissonant chords opening 'A Scotch Bestiary'; this work turns out to be a real showcase for organ and orchestra. I began to read the (excellent) sleeve notes but as so often I realised it's better to just sit back and listen to the music. There are obviously some musical and, evidently, political, jokes being played out but all you have to do is listen. MacMillan himself conducts and gets superlative results from the BBC Philharmonic. Wayne Marshall is the fine organist and Chandos have produced a stunning recording (The Bridgewater Hall, Manchester) which I would put in the demonstration class.

The 2nd. Piano Concerto is in similar vein, Scottish folk tunes appear and undergo sometimes humorous transformation. I found myself returning to this disc again and again and, by letting the music sink in, learn to appreciate it ever more.

This now has made me want to seek out more of MacMillan's music; maybe The Confession of Isobel Gowdie or Veni, Veni, Emmanuel next.

A wonderful disc, highly recommended to more adventurous classical music fans.

Wow! 2 Jun. 2008

I first heard of James MacMillan when I was looking for his "The World's Ransoming" on CD. As I looked on the Boosey & Hawkes website to see what other music was to his credit, I came across this quite unique concerto. I was even more excited when I found that there was a CD recording of the work. The work is very lively and extremely entertaining from start to finish. Each section is very different from the rest, as the organ and orchestra combine in rather unique sounds. Also, the fun percussive sound of, get this, TYPEWRITERS is quite humorous and neat. The only sad thing is that this was not recorded using the Disney Hall organ in Los Angeles, for which the piece was written and on which it was premiered. Other than that, it is glorious. The piano concerto that is also on the disc is also neat, though it pales in comparison to the organ work. Wayne Marshall is a fantastic soloist for both works, and MacMillan himself conducts the orchestra well. This will be a fun recording to have in your collection.
