The music of the Scottish-born but naturalised Swiss composer Robin Orr, who died in 2006 aged 96 is remarkable for its consistent quality and genuine style - the work of a naturally very gifted composer, who wrote three operas and three symphonies amongst other works. Following the success of an earlier Guild CD devoted to his orchestral music, we are proud to present a collection of outstanding broadcast and live performances of his chamber music, including the Duo for violin and cello, which is an absolute masterpiece. The performers are amongst the most famous musicians of the past, including Thurston Dart, Max Rostal and Franz Osborn - which alone guarantees the excellence of this music.
