William ALWYN: Concerto for Oboe, Harp and Strings / Elizabethan Dances / The Innumerable Dance
This fifth volume in the Naxos cycle of the complete orchestral works of William Alwyn features the popular Elizabethan Dances, which contrast ancient and modern dance rhythms from the courts of Elizabeth I and Elizabeth II. The atmospheric Symphonic Prelude 'The Magic Island' was inspired by Shakespeare’s The Tempest. A perfect evocation of Spring, The Innumerable Dance is a tone poem in all but name. This and the exquisite miniature Aphrodite in Aulis have not been heard for over 70 years, and here receive their first recording. Composed during World War II, the Oboe Concerto expresses the composer’s yearning the peace and beauty of the English countryside.

COVID-19 UPDATE 28 September 2020: My online shop is open and operating as normal but due to new restrictions and a Welsh Gov request to reduce journeys I have reduced my posting trips from daily Monday to Saturday to three postings a week which will be on Monday, Wednesday & Fridays. I need to leave my office at 15:45 (London Time) to catch the last post which is currently also earlier than normal due to Covid changes by Royal Mail.
