Recordings featuring Paul’s work
“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
Patterson’s Time Piece (version for five female voices) appears on the ‘Time Travels’ disc released by Wishful Singing on their own label.
Paul Patterson’s Phoenix Concerto gives solo oboist Emily Pailthorpe the character of the mythical Phoenix Firebird itself.
Composer Paul Patterson was present at the sessions for the recording of his three string concertos – one each for violin, viola and cello.
The London Philharmonic Orchestra presents much loved childrens’ TV presenter Chris Jarvis narrating Patterson’s popular musical settings of two of Roald Dahl’s famous Revolting Rhymes, Little Red Riding Hood and The Three Little Pigs.
