Sir Malcolm Arnold was one of the most gifted British composers of his generation. His music communicates directly with listeners through its rhythmic vitality and brilliant orchestration, with melodies that are eloquent, memorable and catchy. Spanning his long creative life, Arnold’s output has nine symphonies at its heart, but also ranges from the popular overture Tam O’Shanter and the lyrical English Dances, to film scores, deeply personal chamber music, and concertos composed for distinguished musical colleagues. This comprehensive introduction to Arnold’s legacy celebrates his centenary year with a rich selection of acclaimed recordings.
