About

One of the most prolific British composers of the 20th century, Sir Malcolm Arnold remains best known for his phenomenal success in film (including an Oscar for his score for David Leanís 1957 classic The Bridge on the River Kwai) and light music, a broad selection of which is included in Sony Classicalís new 11-CD anthology along with 11 concertos. But the heart of his output, the works he regarded as his testament, are the nine symphonies, composed at fairly regular intervals between 1949 and 1986, with musical influences ranging from Holst and Vaughan Williams to Tchaikovsky, Mahler and Sibelius. Vernon Handleyís recordings from the 1990s, many of them made in the composerís presence, are a touchstone for this repertoire. As Gramophone declared: ďItís Handley who best conveys the sinewy logic and thrusting cogency of Arnoldís symphonic odyssey.Ē
