The renowned oboist is heard in this sequence: from the dignified simplicity of her own Elegy, to the rhythmic economy of Birtwistle's Pulse Sampler and the eerie keening of Holt's Banshee.

'Melinda Maxwell displaying that phenomenal range of colour and superfine technical control which inspired these composers to write to for her in the first place. This well-conceived and excellently recorded programme is an attractive introduction to much that is most appealing in contemporary British music.' Gramophone 


All works were recorded between 29-30 May 1996 at Chapel Studio Tilburg
