Robin Holloway : Concerto for Orchestra No.2

Holloway's Second Concerto for Orchestra displays the composer at his most thrilling and eclectic. Inspired by a visit to North Africa, the work pulsates with energy and excitement.

GRAMOPHONE AWARD WINNER - BEST CONTEMPORARY RECORDING 1994 "A fascinating disc: the Concerto isn't quite like anything else I know, and in every aspect NMC have served it well. It deserves the widest possible hearing."
Gramophone 1994
