What better way to conclude our year of feasting than to concoct a celebration of all things gastronomical? These gluttons have a sense of humour too - Tower's Petrouchskates is a high-octane burst of Stravinsky gone wild, the baritone in Paterson's Eating Variations muses on cannibalism at MacDonald's (amongst other things), and Maxwell Davies's Two Glasses of Wine (frontignac and shiraz) each end with a polite belch. We wash it all down with a bow to two modern giants, presenting Webern's seminal arrangement of Schoenberg's First Chamber Symphony.
