  • Sir Malcolm Arnold CBE 1921-2006 - Reviews String Quartets Nos 1 and 2
    this is lean music with no wasted notes and it s strikingly performed with concentration in the playing and detail in the recording The Second Quartet is a darker work written in 1975 the year that Arnold attempted suicide As Richard Whitehouse s note points out it inhabits an emotional world similar to the earlier Seventh Symphony with the same contrast between the anguished and the superficially sentimental That s

  • Sir Malcolm Arnold CBE 1921-2006 - Reviews London Philharmonic Orchestra (Recorded Live At The Royal Festival Hall, London)
    of Till Eulenspiegel but more uninhibitedly vulgar Its brilliant orchestral colours are archetypal early Arnold He was famous for film music too and the suite from the score for the Inn of the Sixth Happiness shows his rich melodic flair in the gorgeous central Romantic Interlude while in the finale we meet the composer s infectious exuberance in his witty interpolation of the folk song This old man But when we turn to the Symphony and the Philharmonic Concerto we encounter a different musical personality The orchestral palette is as imaginative and brilliant as ever but it expresses darkly personal more introverted feelings The Sixth Symphony written in Cornwall in 1967 is perhaps the most troubled of all the symphonies the swirling opening woodwind against stabbing brass leading to a poignant melody the central movement producing the powerful essence of a funeral march with a truly menacing climax and the rondo finale for all its surface exuberance never quite shaking off the work s disconsolate atmosphere The Philharmonic Concerto written in 1976 for the orchestra s US tour in bicentenary year celebrates the American War of Independence without glory but with an infinitely touching elegiac central Andantino beautifully played here

  • Sir Malcolm Arnold CBE 1921-2006 - Reviews The Return of Odysseus Glasgow Hearald
    Malcolm Arnold s rousing cantata The Return of Odysseus a cleverly and audibly unified choral cantata amazingly the only one of its type by the veteran British composer It s a fun piece drenched in seascapes Surging climaxes hugely melodious and catchy and with some oompah moments to its marching rhythms Graham Taylor gets the best out of his Glasgow Chorus who rise to the occasion with a knock out
