The final volume of Alwyns orchestral music in this landmark Naxos series. William Alwyns prolific output included descriptive scores, and The Moor of Venice Dramatic Overture examines the turbulent central character in Shakespeares Othello. The Serenade and the orchestral version of Seven Irish Tunes receive première recordings here, both covering a wide range of moods. Following the previous recording of Concerto Grosso No. 1, this collection includes Concerto Grosso No. 2, scored for strings only and Concerto Grosso No. 3, a tribute to Sir Henry Wood.

"Naxos continues to do 20th-century British music proud with the latest addition to its series devoted to the music of William Alwyn." Andrew Clements, The Guardian
