5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing, 13 May 2013
I'm so grateful to the Luxembourg Philharmonic for doing this. This music is overwhelming and needs to be listened to at a decent volume! So many masterpieces here - if only they could be performed live more often. This is like discovering the orchestra for the first time, so unearthly are some of the sounds. Buy it - it'll change your life!
Birtwistle: The Axe Manual; Harrisons Clocks etc ~ Harrison Birtwistle

Few composers write for piano, or piano and percussion with such a distinctive take on things as Birtwistle. The smaller works are charming, and very interesting as a record, but buy this CD for the kaleidoscopic performance of the Axe Manual and the dazzling excitement of Harrison's Clocks. A first rate CD. Make sure to turn to the volume up!

Neither Beethoven, Simon Rattle or the Vienna Phil need any words of recommendation: we all know how brilliant they are! Unbelievable value for a first-rate Beethoven cycle
