BEST CLASSICAL ALBUM 2007

Hailed as New Zealand’s most ambitious orchestral recording, View From Olympus features inspired and uplifting performances from its principle soloists. Best known as the composer of the ceremonial music for the 2004 Athens Olympic Games, John is ecstatic that this recording has been completed. “For me, this is bigger than anything I’ve done – bigger than the Olympics,” he says. “These are my strongest works – my biggest statements and now they exist in the world.”

"In classical music terms, this is THE LORD OF THE RINGS." – METRO Magazine

"The same small'n'savvy Auckland company who gave us Psathas’ RHYTHM SPIKE now have the NZSO play some of the man's big scores... expertly propelled by the biggest band in the land under Marc Taddei, the delirium is such that even Lance Philips' drumkit cadenza seems an oasis of measured calm... The recording does every shift of mood and sound the fullest justice." – William Dart, NZ HERALD
