“A beautiful symphonic journey into the illusory world of the authors of this excellent musical work. Beautiful transmission of form and mood, the depth of the narrative and a chic immersion in your atmosphere. Such music was created exclusively for one thing - to make you understand how beautiful the world around us is.” (Automatically Translated with Google Translate)

“Красивое симфоническое путешествие в иллюзорный мир авторов этого превосходного музыкального произведения. Красивая передача формы и настроения, глубина повествования и шикарное погружение в свою атмосферу. Подобная музыка создана исключительно для одного — чтобы дать вам понять, как прекрасен окружающий нас мир.”

Peter Drew’s SYMPHONY NO. 1 “REMINISCENCE” is a pastiche of sorts; it gathers up the musical moments that have touched the composer throughout his life. These musical reminiscences recall his excitement as a very young boy, listening to the works of the great western composers through the speaker of a portable radio, and musically encapsulate his discovery of jazz and popular music. The symphony eventually carries listeners well beyond the shores of America to Africa, Australia, Brazil, throughout Europe, India, and Mongolia. Those who follow Drew along this symphonic journey are sure to reap the rewards of the composer’s lifelong dedication to music in all its forms.
