Maw, Nicholas : Dance Scenes

£24.99

An exuberant and vigorous set of four orchestral dances, Nicholas Maw’s Dance Scenes (1995) might almost be called a concerto for orchestra in the way it imaginatively puts each group of instruments through their paces. Maw’s debts to his English forebears are clearly signposted in this kaleidoscopic 19-minute work – the brassy extravagance of the first dance sounds like Walton and the tangy woodwind writing later like Britten – and the whole is breathtakingly scored, filled with an profusion of scintillating invention.
