BBC SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA leader RODNEY FRIEND conducted by PETER EOTVOS Harrison Birtwistle Earth Dances (R)
For sheer mastery nothing could beat 'Earth Dances a mighty multilayered score with a tremendous, inexorable natural momentum all its own.
The megalithic grandeur and sheer dynamism of Birtwistle music were marvellously conveyed in the BBC orchestra's committed performance: it already sounds like a classic orchestral work of our time.
