Peter Maxwell Davies: The Kestrel Road

Peter Maxwell Davies: The Kestrel RoadPeter Maxwell Davies: The Kestrel Road, Notenbuch

Composed in 2003, The Kestrel Road was jointly commissioned by forty-seven choirs, all of which are members of Music Making – a national society that links several thousand amateur choirs and orchestras. This work was commissioned as a tribute to mark the seventieth birthday of Sir Peter Maxwell Davies and was performed nationwide throughout the 2004/5 season.

The Kestrel Road is a song-cycle for SATB Choir and Piano, settings of poems by the `Bard of Orkney` George Mackay Brown (1917-96). The poems are highly evocative of Orkney life, history and folklore, with shepherds, crofters, fisher folk, a laird, a scarecrow King Barleycorn, and the timeless figure of Ikey the Tinker, who passes through many of Brown`s poems, seemingly linking past and present. According to Maxwell Davies, the music is suggestive of the `elusive land and seascapes` of the islands and is much influenced by the local folk music.
