Peter Clark Posted January 30, 2008 Share Posted January 30, 2008 Does anybody play Maxwell Davies' organ music? He hasn't written that much, but there is a remarkably complex and difficult organ sonata (recorded I think by Kevin Bowyer) as well as some shorter (and, frankly, much easier) works. His fantasia (I think) on O Magnum Mysterium is also quite complex. I play his 3 Organ Voluntaries and have just bought 2 Organ Pieces. I have always been a fan of his. When I first heard St Thomas Wake I was knocked out - and then someone gave me his first symphony (conducted by Rattle) for Christmas about 20 years ago. Then I saw at the RFH Vesilae Icones (I think that's how you spell it). His current work includes a series of string quartets comissioned by the Naxos label. Anyway, just curious as to whether others share my enthusiasm or indeed play any of his stuff. Cheers Peter Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
