Notes & Reviews:

"For younger readers the phrase 'Cheltenham Symphony' probably doesn't mean a great deal. But for at least two decades after the Second World War it represented all that was worthiest and dullest in serious British concert music. Alwyn's First Symphony... is a good deal better than that. The imagination is fresher, the lyricism more appealing, the orchestration far less redolent of port-war drabness than that of, say Peter Racine Fricker... in the Third Symphony, in which Alwyn grapples with a kind of tonal serialism, but ends up being musically trapped by it- rather like a man wrestling with a recalcitrant deckchair."
