Programme Note
Peter Maxwell Davies Chat Moss (1994)
This short tone-poem is made to let a school orchestra glow. Characteristically, Davies finds ways to engage and stretch young players while staying within the bounds of what is practical for them. And as so often, the result is a piece in which he thinks youthfully. This is vividly dramatic music - but then so too is the adult composition which comes straight afterwards and quotes from it: the Fifth Symphony.
