Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This is an astounding CD of modern classical music - though I'm sure not to everyone's taste. Having met Robert Saxton recently, he is the most charming man you'll ever meet. Tasmin Little plays beautifully. Go on - buy it and see!

welcome reissues from the now defunct Collins Classics 2 Feb. 2010
By Discophage - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
NMC, a label devoted to British contemporary music, must be thanked for bringing back some of the releases of the now defunct Collins Classics (1989-1998 RIP), with, when possible, welcome bonuses as well. Such reissues include Harrison Birtwistle (Harrison Birtwistle: The Triumph of Time; Ritual Fragment; Gawain's Journey), John Casken (John Casken: Darting the Skiff; Maharal Dreaming; Cello Concerto; Vaganza), Robin Holloway (Robin Holloway: Violin Concerto; Horn Concerto), Colin Matthews (Colin Matthews: Landscape; Cello Concerto No. 1; Hidden Variables; etc.), David Matthews' (Colin's brother) 4th Symphony (David Matthews: Cantiga; September Music; Introit; Symphony No. 4), Thea Musgrave (Thea Musgrave: Helios), Judith Weir (Judith Weir: Blond Eckbert). Most these NMC reissues have two entries on this website, but since these reviews are limited to ten product links, I've mentioned here only the cheapest one at the time of writing. If interested, search on the composer and "nmc" (in music, not classical, as some may be listed in "popular music"); and make sure to check for the original Collins release, which you may find for cheaper still.

This one reissues the complete Saxton works that were spread on three Collins' CDs - four in fact, due to reissues by Collins: "Music to Celebrate the Ressurrection of Christ" first came in 1990 as a filler to Britten's Piano Concerto, Britten: Overture 'Paul Bunyan'; Piano Concerto/ Saxon: Music to Celebrate the Resurrection of Christ; Joanna Macgregor and a little later with "In The Beginning" (for which I haven't found an entry on this website or on the UK sister company), on Collins' small batch of short-timed CDs, part of their 20th Century plus collection; the same "In the Beginning was also on an all-Saxton collection from 1991, which I have reviewed in more detail (Robert Saxton: Violin Concerto / In the Beginning / I Will Awake the Dawn) and then Caritas was released a year later (Saxton: Caritas - An Opera in Two Acts, also listed under ASIN:B000BOB07C, but I'm out of authorized product links).

Saxton writes music that is dramatic and powerful, in a language that is fully contemporary but not cutting edge, often relying on a simple dramaturgy of rising from "darkness" (the lowest registers) to "light", presenting no difficulty if you are used to contemporary music, and for all these reasons, enjoyable, but not revelatory.
