With the year drawing to a close, it got me thinking. What have I newly enjoyed in 2014?
Firstly the 1995 guitar concerto by Richard Harvey was an eye opener! I just had to stop and listen when I first heard it on the radio this summer.
Will Todd and his touching choral music is the artist of the year for me, so much so that I got his new album Lux et Veritas for my birthday.
And Patrick Hawes’s Highgrove Suite is magical.
Of course my appreciation of Gustav Mahler’s music was expanded with my reawakening to his 9th symphony!
I hope you like my suggestions. What were your musical highlights this year?
