Malcolm Arnold

October 21, 1921 - September 23, 2006
born in Northampton, England, composed during the Contemporary period
Malcolm Arnold (1921-2006) was a British composer who wrote music in an accessibly tonal and tuneful style, which set him at odds with most of the avant-garde set of the mid-20th century. Arnold is best known for his prolific work in film, where he produced over 80 scores, such as The Bridge on the River Kwai and David Copperfield, while simultaneously working on many other compositions. His vast output includes nine symphonies, twenty concertos, five ballets, and numerous shorter pieces of all varieties. Arnold was rewarded for his distinguished service to British music with a knighthood in 1993. ~ Blair Sanderson, Rovi

@ Robert
It shimmers bc of their amazing breath support as well as bc their instruments r made to sound like that. The Canadian brass have this kind of tonality in many of their recordings as well. You may not hear that kind of tonality in some pieces bc they r not supposed to sound like that... Hope that answers ur question

I have always been drawn to his guitar concerto, very cinematic, mysterious, exciting.

How can you not smile when listening to this? It's cheerful, uplifting music.

I like him very much. I have always loved the belligerent music of the brits; uncanny with the brass and the sweeter sounds that he calls forth. A well rounded musical experience for the hearty.
