Reviews

The Cello Concerto of 1998 is a vintage example of Arnold's late manner - almost wilfully easy on the ear, yet somehow disturbed and haunting, and relentlessly laced with irony. The opening movement, chirpily chasing its own tail, is followed by a much darker slow one; [...] The other outstanding work is the Recorder Fantasy of 1990, its five movements and four sizes of recorder between them encompassing an ear-catching range of sounds. The Symphony for Strings remains one of his most impressive creations, restlessly and probingly inventive. All the performances are excellent, each of them palpably savouring the composer's diamond-sharp craftmanship.
