Notes and Editorial Reviews

“exciting reading of Arnold’s finest symphony from unexpected sources, coupled with enchanting CD debutants … The 5th is a marvellous symphony, perhaps his greatest – powerfully argued, confidently structured, and full of memorable invention. It is good to see it so well played and recorded in Munich, guided by Douglas Bostock who comes into his own in four extra works, which are all first recordings. Divertimento- a splendidly characterful triptych; there is much outrageous fun in the St Trinian’s score – bursting with irreverent ideas and effects; and the lovely, nostalgic ‘Sarabande’ of Solitaire (one of his most touching tunes).”(Gramophone)
