This 2CD set presents a number of works that can be classed as “double concertos” by two leading composers of today. All works are highly accessible, but at the same time quite challenging for the soloists. In every case, this collection is the first time these pieces have been committed to a commercial recording.

GORDON CROSSE was born in Bury, Lancashire, in 1937,and is one of the most distinguished composers of his generation. Crosse's bestknown works include the oboe concert ante Ariadne, the Three Choirs Festival Oratorio Changes, the opera Purgatory (being one ofthe first operas presented at the then recently opened Royal Northern College of Music), the children's entertainment Meet my Folks, to words by Ted Hughes, the orchestral Dream songs (a homage to the music of Benjamin Britten) and Memories of Morning: Night (a monodrama formezzo-soprano and orchestra inspired by Jean Rhys's nove W ide Sargasso Sea).

SIR JOHN MANDUELL was born in 1928 in Johannesburg. The family returned to England in 1938 and, Manduell read Modern Languages at Jesus College, Cambridge. He then enjoyed a varied and successful career at the BBC, where he was successively a staff music producer, producer to the BBC Symphony Orchestra, Head of Music for the Midlands and EastAnglia and ultimately responsible forsetting up the BBC's first all day music broadcasting service ,initially called the Music Programme and now Radio 3.At he age of 40 he then entered academic life as Director of Music at the new Lancaster Universitybefore becoming in 1971 the founding Principal of the Royal Northern College of Music.

Manchester Sinfonia is a vibrant professional Orchestra which serves a variety of purposes such as making CDs of music by living composers, accompanying choral societies and performing concerts either as self promotions or engagements. Its members represet the cream of musicians in and around Manchester which is the key to producing exceptional performances of the highest quality.
