LSO Live present a second album of new works by emerging composers, all of whom have been members of the Panufnik Composers Scheme: devised by the LSO in association with Lady Panufnik in memory of her late husband. The Scheme began in 2005 and each year offers six composers the opportunity to write a three minute piece for the LSO. This recording showcases the works of selected composers from across the first 10 years of the Scheme alongside Panufnik Variations, a project by composer Colin Matthews and Panufnik Scheme alumni. Taking a theme from Sir Andrzej Panufnik’s Universal Prayer, the work features a series of variations by Max de Wardener, Evis Sammoutis, Christopher Mayo, Toby Young, Elizabeth Winters, Larry Goves, Raymond Yiu, Anjula Semmens and Edmund Finnis, bookended by an opening and conclusion by Colin Matthews. Also featured on this release are works by Kim B Ashton, Leo Chadburn, Bushra El-Turk, Matthew Kaner, James Moriarty, Elizabeth Ogonek, Aaron Parker, Alastair Putt and Duncan Ward.

Colin Matthews says of the Panufnik project, "A real relationship develops, which continues beyond the scheme itself, so that we feel that a ‘Panufnik family’ has been established…. What is remarkable to me is the unity that has emerged from this project : a tribute both to the inspiration provided by Andrzej Panufnik, and to the faith that the LSO has shown in the Panufnik Scheme."
