“Looking back across 35 years of creativity, it quickly becomes evident that such thinking has always been an essential part of Taylor’s compositional make-up (as with David Matthews and John Pickard, few of his works eschew some aspect of the symphonic). Gratifying then, that he has persisted in such endeavours in a cultural climate that was made unfavourable first by ideology and then by commerce; one which the English Symphony Orchestra is now in the process of tackling.”
