Max’s most recent symphony was almost denied to us: so ill was he that much of the work was written in hospital. His subsequent recovery, much like the work itself, is especially welcome, especially in as persuasive a performance as the premiere under Pappano’s energising baton. Vocal writing is punchy and effective, whatever its challenges met with gusto by soloist and chorus. If Panufnik’s Tenth adds little to the disc, it is concise, well-crafted and winningly played. Good sound.
