ARNOLD: CONCERT OVERTURES (CD)
Composed by: Malcolm Arnold

This unique anthology of concert overtures should prove as popular, for the music is similarly illustrative and entertaining. Some of these works are rare in the catalogue and one of them has never before been recorded. They demonstrates Arnold’s versatility, for they cover a broad range of musical moods - the comic "Tam o’ Shanter," the pastoral "A Sussex Overture," and the hilariously inventive "A Grand Grand Festival Overture," a piece which was enormous fun to record, for the orchestral line-up includes vacuum cleaners and a floor polisher, played, on this recording, by the management of the BBC Philharmonic!
