Sir Malcolm Arnold's (1921-2006) 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 directly from the soul, appearing here in its première recording.


There are many Malcolm Arnold's discs shared online, but not this one, as far as I can tell. And what an excellent collection of his works this is, with lovely tunes and inventive timbres and colors aplenty. Among other works, Recorder Fantasy is outstanding, written originally for Michala Petri. Her performance of this work is very good too, and since I have another version of it, I will eventually share that disc as well. Enjoy!
