MAXWELL DAVIES, P.: Strathclyde Concerto No. 2 / Cello Sonata (Ceccanti, Canino, Italian Radio Symphony, Maxwell Davies)

This is the second disc of works focussing on Peter Maxwell Davies’ continuing artistic relationship with the Ceccanti family. The Second Strathclyde Concerto is notable for its eloquently expressive cello lines and the composer’s signature transparency of orchestration. The Sonata ‘Sequentia Serpentigena’, written for Vittorio, was inspired by early medieval stone carvings in Tuscany and uses Gregorian chant to bring the serpent’s symbolism of temptation and betrayal to life. The Little Tune for Vittorio is a song based on an original theme in a Scottish folk style. Vittorio and Mauro Ceccanti can be heard in Maxwell Davies’ Linguae Ignis and Vesalii Icones on Naxos 8.572712.
