Performers Composer

Notes & Reviews:

William Alwyn composed prolifically in virtually all genres, orchestral, chamber, vocal and instrumental. Like his contemporary Samuel Barber, Alwyn was an unashamed Romantic who preferred his music to appeal to the heart rather than to the head. The works presented here, five of which are recorded for the first time, cover a period of fifty years from the Two Songs for Voice, Violin and Piano of 1931 to the Chaconne For Tom for recorder and piano dating from 1982. In each of these pieces Alwyn's compositional gift and technical mastery of his chosen medium are immediately apparent.
