About

The new London Sinfonietta Label was launched in 2004 with a CD of tributes written for Oliver Knussen’s fiftieth birthday celebrations by a selection of his admirers and friends. The thirteen tracks on 'Snapshots' are world premiere recordings of London Sinfonietta/Royal Festival Hall co-commissions and birthday gifts from composers from around the world, recorded live at the Queen Elizabeth Hall. 
 
All works were recorded live at Oliver Knussen’s 50th birthday concerts on 12 June 2002 by BBC Radio 3.  
 
‘…a joyful disc, ebulliently performed. With the arrival of the London Sinfonietta label, the world has suddenly become a better place.’ The Times 
 
All are dazzingly well played by the Sinfonietta and pianists Nicolas Hodges and Rolf Hind, and with a roster of composers headed by Elliott Carter but also including Detlev Glanert, George Benjamin, Julian Anderson, almost every one of these 13 pieces is a gem.’ The Guardian
