David Denton
David's Review Corner, February 2014

In December 2009 I wrote: ‘my first acquaintance with the New Zealand-born composer, Lyell Cresswell, has been one of the most rewarding in recent times’. This second disc shows a composer moving forward into new sound-worlds, and we have to journey with him, even when the going gets tough. Performances from the New Zealand orchestra demonstrate much detailed rehearsal, with the fine New Zealand String Quartet adding much to the Concerto for Orchestra. The pianist, Stephen De Pledge, readily moves from his role of contemplation to frenetic activity in the Piano Concerto. The sound quality is excellent. © 2014 David’s Review Corner
