"Chandos is one of the most innovative independent recording labels in the world and I am proud to have had such a long and rewarding relationship with them over the years. They are not afraid of recording new repertoire which deserves to have a wider listening public; this is certainly true, in particular, through their advocacy of many Twentieth Century British composers. In my own case, I am grateful that Chandos has recorded seven of my concertos. As far as this new CD is concerned, I am delighted to have three international soloists and an orchestra of such quality to perform my music, combined with a superb award-winning production team. A composer could
not ask for more!" Edward Gregson.

Edward Gregson is one of Britain's most versatile composers, whose music has been performed, broadcast and recorded worldwide. A noted conductor of contemporary music, he has also held numerous academic posts. He retires as Principal of the Royal Northern College of Music at the end of this academic term.

Gregson's life-long fascination for the concerto form began early but having been brought up in a Salvationist family it was inevitable that the brilliant sound of the British brass band should play an important role in the early years of his composing career. This led to a parallel universe of musical experiences. 'On the one hand I was playing music by some fine brass band composers and on the other being absorbed in the music of Bartok, Prokofiev, Hindemith, Webern, Stravinsky, Shostakovich, Tippett and others.' This musical landscape greatly influences his compositional style to this day. ' concertos use musical reference or homage, as a backbone to
the work. Each uses the idea of musical tribute in a different way.' The Concerto for Piano and Wind and Saxophone Concerto, in particular, pay tribute to those composers whose concertos Gregson loved when he was a teenager. In the slow movement of the Saxophone Concerto Gregson actually quotes the opening of the Berg Violin Concerto, 'mainly because my own musical fabric in that movement is built on a twelve-note row with a strong reference to major and minor thirds. In my Trumpet Concerto, the slow movement uses Shostakovich's musical cipher DSCH as the main reference point to what is an In Memoriam to the Russian master who had died not long before I started writing the work.'
