Concerto No 1 for Flute and Strings (Op 45)

By Arnold Malcolm

M. Arnold: "Flute Concerto No 1" for flute and strings (Op 45) was written in 1954 and very well represents Arnold's music which is full of sarcasm, rooted in post-World War II era in Europe. The Concerto displays broad variation of styles, evoking playfulness, melancholy and jazzy harmonies in the 3rd movement.

Arnold Malcolm

Sir Malcolm Arnold (1921-2006) was an English composer who has written for almost every genre of music: 9 symphonies, various concertos, chamber music, extensive works for theatre, including 5 ballets and 2 operas, as well as music for over 100 movies, from which The Bridge on the River Kwai (1957) he won an Oscar.

Initially, inspired by Louis Armstrong performance, Malcolm Arnold became a trumpet player (after playing several years as a principal trumpet with BBC Symphony Orchestra and London Philharmonic) but then completely devoted himself to composition, highly praised later by Benjamin Britten.
