Malcolm Arnold

£6.00

A compilation of music by Sir Malcolm Arnold – includes the NCO and Raphael Wallfisch playing Cello Concerto Opus 136 (performing edition by David Ellis) and Symphony for Strings.

The composer’s preference for classical forms is fully explored in this representative but uniquely distinctive programme.  Orchestrations of earlier works form the lyrical Concertino for Flute and Strings and a Saxophone Concerto whose bold statements foreshadow the gritty and powerful Symphony for Strings.  Arnold’s virtuoso Fantasy for Recorder and String Quartet is a late work and the Cello Concerto was the composer’s last in this form; a piece which speaks from the soul, appearing here in its premiere recording.

RECORDING OF THE MONTH!  “The disc is a hands-down winner in the Naxos catalogue.” MusicWeb International, September 2011
