Mask Of Orpheus20000910

After more than a decade in two of the most important musical jobs in Britain - chief conductor of the BBC Symphony Orchestra and musical director at Glyndebourne - Sir Andrew Davis is on his way to a new life in Chicago.

A familiar personality from the Last Night of the Proms, Sir Andrew retraces the contours of his musical journey which began even before his days at King's College, Cambridge, taking in such 20th-century mountains as Birtwistle's `Mask of Orpheus' and Elgar's final symphony.
