Catalogue No.: SIGCD668
Release Date: 5th March 2021
Recorded at the height of the international Covid lockdown, Oliver Davis’ sixth album for Signum is a feat of both technological as well as artistic achievement. Davis draws together artists from
across the globe for a selection of moving works for a variety of forces - recording a violinist in Los Angeles, a piano duo in The Netherlands, a guitarist in Argentina and the Budapest Scoring
Orchestra conducted by Péter Illényi in Budapest.
Davis’ previous albums with Signum have reached the Top 10 in the UK Specialist Classical Charts multiple times, receiving numerous five-star reviews.
British composer Oliver Davis has parlayed a long record as a composer of film and television scores into a successful career as a composer of orchestral music that, in performance, has attracted top-notch London orchestras and soloists.

choreographer Edwaard Liang at New York City Ballet’s prestigious Fall Fashion Gala.
