To celebrate Colin Matthews' 70th birthday we release this new album featuring a star-studded line-up of artists, including conductors Riccardo Cello Concerto No. 2 of 1996 was composed for none other than Mstislav Rostropovich. But perhaps the strongest emotional impact of the three works here belongs to 1988's Cortège, for which Matthews provided no program and insisted that it was, despite what some may think by its title, not meant as a funeral march. Nevertheless, the 27-minute work has the combination of epic quality and inwardness that characterized much of Mahler's work, and in its later stages it reaches transcendent levels.

Though not quite a giant of our time, the composer Colin Matthews has been a redoubtable pillar of the British new-music establishment. His own pieces - more than 120 and counting - are impeccably crafted. His orchestrations of other peoples music reveal the most refined gift for what one might call creative musical empathy. He is the foremost guardian of the legacy of Benjamin Britten, whom he briefly assisted as a youngster. No, thanks. more quotes. All stations. Now playing: Depeche Mode Enjoy the Silence. Air Touch.
