Description: This series moves on with the 49-minute Sixth, about which Michael Kennedy said in The Telegraph upon its original release, "...another of Sir Peter's Orkney seascapes and would, I believe, have been recognised as such by Arnold Bax, whose Fourth Symphony it resembles in its colour and surge. To mention Bax and Max in the same sentence is, I suppose, to confirm the worst fears of the avant-garde, who believe that the composer of the sensational pieces of the 1960s is now a spent force because his music has become more 'accessible', whatever that term means. But is a composer not allowed to mature and change?" Royal Philharmonic Orchestra;  Peter Maxwell Davies. Original 1994 and 1996 Collins Classics releases.
