Great recordings - I love works like Summer Music, Celebration and Sinfonietta and his Jazz and Filmmusic - the way he orchestrates very subtle. It puts a smile on my face, like a ray of sunshine, just beautiful. His earlier works, under the influence of Pierre Boulez, I find more difficult to grasp. What I don't understand is that this is "Vol. 1" - Chandos released an album in 2006 of Orcheastral Music by R.R Bennett also "Vol. 1" nb. also a great CD
A fantastic collection - the 3rd Symphony especially, is a masterpiece! Looking forward to future volumes! If you are interested in hearing more, there are many fine live performances of this composer's music available on YouTube.
