Peter Maxwell Davies

Philip Grange
One of the foremost composers of our time, Sir Peter Maxwell Davies (1934-2016) made a significant contribution to musical history through his wide-ranging and prolific output. In a worklist that spans more than five decades, he wrote across a broad range of styles, yet his music always communicated directly and powerfully, whether in his profoundly argued symphonic works, his music-theatre or witty light orchestral works.
