Years in the making. Over 200 musicians. 3 orchestras. Charles Mauleverer's first album... "OVERTURE" tells 10 stories through 10 orchestral pieces. Written between 2003 and 2022, the recordings are shared between three brilliant orchestras across Europe: The Prague Symphonic Ensemble, the Slovak Radio Symphony Orchestra and the Royal Scottish National Orchestra.

  "You have created a work of beauty... For three-quarters of an hour, I was transported... At one point, a brass-band sound suggested the industrial north. At another time, I was an astronaut stepping out into a new world with trepidation, but the planet was beautiful in its strangeness (then all the plant-like things started pulsing...). At another point, I saw a busy-body woman striding comically with determined intent through the town, and then a second character, then a third also started their purposeful and swift walks towards an inevitable show-down.

I shall treasure this CD."

  "I have just finished listening to your album and WOW!! it's soooooo BEAUTIFUL"

"I gave your album to my granddad for Christmas - he absolutely loved it, said it was very beautiful"

“I love playing your music in my class, it’s just so beautiful and beautiful to teach to... over the 20 years I've been teaching, I've played so many different albums and have never had people enquire about them in the way they have about yours”

“What a Christmas present – a real box of goodies! It’s such a treat to hear pieces I didn’t even know existed! It’s a triumph – especially as it needed so much hard work, grit and self belief from you”

"The music is amazing. The Overture is a true masterpiece! Waiting for your new releases"

"What a superb album. Many, many congratulations. Beautiful themes and orchestrations" - Robert Emery
