  • Description:


    Sir Peter Maxwell Davies is one of Britain's most significant composers. Born in Salford in 1934, his studies took him from Manchester to Rome and Princeton. He is a leading composer on the international arena as well as being a distinguished conductor and a pioneer in the world of music education. Start Point was wirtten for the Sanday Fiddle Club. Sanday is one of the Orkney Islands, the archipelago that since 1970 Maxwell Davies has made his home. The Sanday Fiddle Club is a mixed-level group for the community. This makes these tunes very flexible and they can be played by string quartet as well as by string ensemble. They are intended to e enjoyed by all ! Maxwell Davies has always built and maintained close links with the community and the annual St Magnus Festival, which he founded in 1977, and at which 2006 the tunes received their first complete performance, is an example of this with strong local participation
