Reviews

"William Alwyn is a leading member of the 'lost' generation of British composers, who wrote important music in the central decades of the twentieth century. [The music] is for me so much more immediately rewarding than the Boulez school, and I hope to tempt you to explore it further. The performances are passionately authoritative and the vintage recording, from the 1970s, splendidly engineered." Ivan March, Gramophone "These recordings with the composer himself leading the London Philharmonic Orchestra are the best single-disc introductions to his music. [Alwyn] knew his music better than anyone and he finds heights and depths in it that others miss." James Leonard, allmusic.com 'Key Recording' *** PENGUIN GUIDE 2010
