Composer Maxwell Davies was closely associated with the Scottish Chamber Orchestra from the 1980s until his passing in 2016. With this new release, the ensemble celebrates the life of their beloved Composer Laureate. Maxwell Davies produced an incredible amount of music during his career. In 2014, a BBC Prom was devoted completely to his works. The cornerstone of this album is An Orkney Wedding, which portrays the beauty of a sunrise after a boozy celebration. The Scottish Chamber Orchestra is well-known and respected all over the world. They are conducted here by Ben Gernon, who conducted the ensemble in the 2014 Davies devoted BBC Proms. "This music was fun, the playing of the musicians superb, and it left the audience in an excited and bedazzled celebratory mood." (BachTrack).
