I am delighted to be giving a lecture about my one-time mentor and teacher, Sir Peter Maxwell Davies. The conference, called ‘Unmasking Max’ is on 25 April 2020 at Cardiff University. I will be talking about a series of orchestral works Max wrote about his childhood memories in Salford in a paper entitled ‘Salford Fairgrounds and Five-legged sheep: Peter Maxwell Davies’s Construction of his Own Childhood and the Ambiguities of Mythmaking’.
