About

Among British composer William Alwyn’s large body of work, including five symphonies, concertos for flute, oboe, violin, harp, piano, and many shorter orchestral works, there is a significant amount of chamber and instrumental music.

This disc presents six works which were composed between 1934 and 1962.

During this time, Alwyn’s style developed from the easy flowing melodies exemplified in the Oboe Sonata, Viola Sonatina (here receiving its world premičre recording), and Suite for Oboe and Harp to the more astringent and darker language of the Clarinet Sonata and String Trio.

Conversations, originally named Music for Three Players, comprises eight short descriptive pieces.
