Oliver Davis: Flight - Kerenza Peacock

Classic FM Drive Featured Album, 2 March 2015.

Oliver Davis has composed and produced numerous albums, soundtracks, concertos and television scores working with all the major London orchestras.

His concerto for violin and strings, Flight was premiered at St Martin in the Fields by Kerenza Peacock and the Trafalgar Ensemble. Davis then went on to compose a further set of pieces for violin and orchestra resulting in this album. One movement of Flight has already been choreographed at the Royal Ballet's recent Draft Works.

The music is full of movement and energy. It's spirited, lively, and at times reminiscent of the music of Michael Nyman. Kerenza Peacock plays with great panache and verve.
