Recordings featuring Paul’s work

Featured Recording

“This delightful disc features two works by Paul Patterson based on stories by Roald Dahl, Little Red Riding Hood and The Three Little Pigs. The nearest comparision is of course Prokofiev’s Peter and the Wolf, except that this piece’s didacticism is replaced with the wit and humour of Dahl’s words and Patterson’s music. Highly recommended, particulary in the infectious performances from the Magnard Ensemble.”    Robert Hugill – Planet Hugill
