Alwyn & Carwithen: Music for String
SOMM RECORDINGS coupling of string quartets by teacher and pupil William Alwyn and Doreen Carwithen offers a revealing glimpse in illuminating performances by the Tippett Quartet into the relationship between a master composer and his promising student who became one of the great what might have beens of British 20th-century music. Alwyns position as a leading British composer was cemented by his prolific output (totaling more than 500 scores) while Carwithen abandoned composing altogether to act as Alwyns amanuensis and secretary, eventually becoming his wife in 1975. Composed in 1948, Alwyns atmospherically charged Three Winter Poems are charming works that benefit from the evocative, emotional immediacy that characterized his cinema scores. His last major work, 1984s String Quartet No.3, was a valedictory celebration of what the composer called this most perfect of mediums. Unexpectedly animated (Alwyn was 79 at the time), it ends, says the William Alwyn Foundations Andrew Knowles in his authoritative booklet notes, in peaceful serenity, providing a moving and fitting swansong to Alwyns composing career. While the prolific Alwyn composed 16 string quartets, Carwithen produced just two, both early in her career, both displaying, says Knowles, a remarkably sound technique and a ...

Arnell: String Quartets
Dutton s groundbreaking Arnell series has garnered much attention and warm praise from critics. Arnell s music widely admired by such artists as Sir Thomas Beecham and Leopold Stokowski fell out of musical fashion in the late 1950s. Thankfully, Arnell s superbly conceived and original compositions were rediscovered by later generations, who have responded with notable enthusiasm. This new recording contains the first five of his six string quartets, performed by the Tippett Quartet.
