Notes & Reviews:

William Alwyn (1905-1985) was a British composer whose appeal has been steadily widening in recent years. This is one of the two 'Lyrita' recordings Alwyn made of his own orchestral music, and it is a most attractive introduction to his art. "Alwyn's technical mastery and his ability to conceal ingenuity make for a consistently strong, immediate music-making. It is most welcome to have his own interpretations restored to the catalogue, with the CD transfers offering a bright, full, well-balanced sound, only slightly edgy on high strings." -'Gramophone'
