Michael Stimpson – Age of Wonders CD
Age of Wonders was written to mark the 200th anniversary of the birth of Charles Darwin. Masterfully recorded by the Philharmonia Orchestra, it can be heard in its entirety under the baton of conductor Stuart Stratford.
The works of Michael Stimpson have been performed and commissioned by some of the UK’s most distinguished artists including the English Chamber Orchestra, London Sinfonietta, Allegri and Maggini String Quartets, Bristol Bach Choir, Roderick Williams, Paul Agnew, David Campbell, Philippe Graffin, and Sioned Williams. A number of the UK’s nest venues have featured performances of his work including Wigmore Hall, Queen Elizabeth Hall, Purcell Room, and Cadogan Hall, as well as a variety of UK festivals. International recognition has prompted performances in Australia, Europe, Iran and the USA.
