Strathclyde Concerto No. 2 (Miniature Score)
COMPOSER: Peter Maxwell Davies
PUBLISHER: Chester Music
PRODUCT TYPE: Score
INSTRUMENT GROUP: Orchestra
If Davies's Cello Concerto has already evoked comparisons with Elgar's, that is perhaps an indication not only of its wealth of solo melody (there is hardly a page where the cello is not singing, or if not that,thendancing), and of its predominantly slow tempos, but also of its musical stature.
