John Casken : Cello Concerto

Casken's lyrical Cello Concerto is coupled with Maharal Dreaming, a vivid orchestral fantasy; the glittering Darting the Skiff; and the theatrical and exuberant Vaganza.

"This well-filled disc deserves success. It is the perfect way to get to know some truly inventive and stimulating music by one of our most important contemporary composers. It should be snapped up by anyone who cares about the modern British music scene."
