Alwyn The Magic Island & Sinfonietta


Alwyn The Magic Island & Sinfonietta


"If you've ever been tempted to find out what the orchestral music of William Alwyn sounds like, this is the place to start. It has five highly characteristic pieces by the conservative English modernist in five performances recorded in exemplary stereo sound. The performers are led by the composer, a seasoned conductor who elicits brilliantly colorful, energetically driven, and deeply committed playing from the polished English ensemble." James Leonard, "This excellent disc provides a rewarding conspectus of William Alwyn's output. The recording [Sinfonietta] is a joy to experience, as the strings are recreated faithfully with full depth yet also with the utmost clarity" 'Key Recording' *** PENGUIN GUIDE 2010
