A guide to the music of Britain's most prominent living composer, this volume contains the most complete listing available of Davies's works (unpublished as well as published) plus a comprehensive discography and a bibliography of nearly 1,000 items. Each entry is keyed to the discography and the annotated bibliography. There is also a brief biography. Maxwell Davies is extremely prolific, with nearly 300 compositions to his credit so far. He is also a conductor of distinction. This work will be of interest to scholars and students as well as anyone interested in 20th-century composers. Davies currently holds the posts of Associate Conductor/Composer with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and the BBC Philharmonic, among other positions. Moreover, he has been a strong voice in support of music education in Britain and has composed many works for children and young performers. When he taught music to children, he encouraged them to compose, believing that most have a natural musical ability.
