This chapter explores the diverse ways in which specific landscapes and places were captured and conveyed in and through Peter Maxwell Davies’s own musical language. It considers, essentially, the compositional, stylistic and structural approaches employed by Davies to create connections to landscape, place and the soundscapes of nature. It examines the central role that Orkney and its land- and seascape played in Davies’s development as a composer, and also reflects on Davies’s affection for and engagement with specifically non-Orkney landscapes and places.
