Music Director Jonathan Crowhurst on the release of Roar!

When one talks about composers in the present age, there are few one can describe as having a truly unique and individual voice – Andy Scott is an exception.

Since exploring his world Dark Rain back in 2012, it has been a fantastic journey for myself and Maidstone Wind Symphony to play such wonderful and varied music. Every work, from Madiba to Salt of the Earth, from Fujiko to Freedom of Movement, has a unique style and yet a conscious stream which makes the music very much Andy’s . He has been an inspiration to collaborate with on this project, which has been five years in the making.

To work with the calibre of soloists on this disc has been a huge privilege and I want to thank them, Andy, Dave our fantastic engineer, and of course the band for all their magnificent work during those sessions back in October. On behalf of MWS, our thanks must go to everyone who mad this journey possible; all the donors, committees, venues – we are indebted to you.

I would also like to pay special tribute to our President Dan Daley who has been supportive beyond measure during my tenure with the band. If anyone encapsulates the spirit of MWS it is him. We will never be able to repay his endless generosity,

Finally, thank you to you for making this journey with us. Putting something new into the world is what making music is all about so I hope you enjoy it; every track has something different and we are all immensely proud of it. Thank you for listening.
