Format: Audio CD
If there is anyone who conducts the music of Malcolm Arnold (1921-2006) better than Vernon Handley, I don't know who it is. This CD is a live recording of a concert by Handley and the London Philharmonic Orchestra during an Arnold Festival in September 2004. Handley has a natural way with Arnold's music which is so immediately accessible in the right hands, but is more complex than it sounds. Handley makes sure that we grasp the main threads of Arnold musical argument, a real plus particularly in the somewhat knotty Sixth Symphony which is given a sterling performance here.

The CD starts with one of Arnold's most popular works -- understandably so -- the comic overture 'Beckus the Dandipratt.' I always smile before I even heard a note of this work because I am always tickled by its title. A 'dandipratt', by the way, is an urchin. This work is Arnold's 'Till Eulenspiegel' and is delightful both for its high spirits and its memorable themes and their inventive handling. The performance here is one of the best I've heard.

Arnold was a busy movie composer and the suite from 'The Inn of the Sixth Happiness' is both typical of Hollywood big-picture music and of Arnold's big-hearted approach to composition. This is a movie, based on a true story, in which Ingrid Bergman plays an Englishwoman who goes to China and ultimately winds up saving the lives of a large number of Chinese children by shepherding them over the mountains to safety just ahead of the Japanese invasion in World War II. There are three sections here: London Prelude, Romantic Interlude, and Happy Ending. The latter accompanies the trek over the mountains and is based on the nursery song 'This Old Man, He Plays One' which Bergman teaches the children to sing to calm their fears.

Malcolm Arnold's Symphonies are a truly great achievement, not just for an English composer. The music more the vain of Mahler and Shostakovich than Elgar or Vaughan-Williams, it's as far from the "cow-pat" style of music (to use Elisabeth Lutyens' devastating quip). His 9 Symphonies (11, if you include the Symphony for Brass and Symphony for Strings) have been recorded by Handley for Conifer, by Andrew Penny for Naxos and by Hickox (together with Rumon Gamba) for Chandos. Chandos hasn't released a complete set, the Conifer recordings were (briefly?) re-issued by Decca in the UK, and the immensely attractive Naxos "White Box" cycle has been inexplicably taken off the shelves, too. Until they re-appear, this recording on the London Philharmonic's own label is a very attractive introduction to Arnold conducted by Handley. The Sixth Symphony is typical of Arnold's musical bite without being forbidding, the couplings are works Arnold wrote for the orchestra that plays them here.
