Notes and Editorial Reviews

"A mandatory purchase for lovers of Arnold's music... Certainly this Naxos disc is useful for including the Welsh Dances, and for its price it is not to be sniffed at." -- Colin Clarke, musicweb.uk.net

"...at budget price and with the five sets of dances on one disc, nobody will regret giving this disc a try." - Classic CD - September 1996

"This new Naxos set of the Arnold Dances from the Queensland orchestra under Andrew Penny is well worth its modest cost and it has the advantage of including the Four welsh dances, not otherwise available on CD..this Naxos CD offers and excellent and inexpensive collection, more complete than any of its competitors." - Gramophone - October 1996 Read more />
"An excellent chance to pick up on the music of an undervalued British composer at a very keen price." - Northern Echo - August 1996

"The Queensland Symphony seems to be an excellent ensemble ... Andrew Penny leads his charges with confidence and elan. The sound image hints at concert hall realism; quality is as good as what is found on many higher priced discs." - American Record Guide - Nov / Dec 1996

"only the Naxos release has the Welsh Dances ... much credit goes to young Arnold specialist Andrew Penny" - Fanfare
