Notes & Reviews:

William Alwyn was a contemporary of Britten, Walton and Tippett. In addition to his 'serious' works, he was also a pioneer in composing for the cinema, having written the music for sixty feature films between 1936 and 1962. The two concerto performances on this CD were available previously, coupled with two of Alwyn's symphonies. Both works were highly praised by Gramophone and The Penguin Guide. Having the two concertos on one disc makes for a logical (and estimable!) reissue.
