Malcolm Arnold. Intro. to his music - Cole, Hugo (Books)
Malcom Arnold has established himself as one of the foremost - and most frequently performed - British composers of the 20th century, with an output that encompasses all the major genres of serious music, as well as music for television, radio, theatre and film. Yet he is a composer who fits into no recognised category, and until now, little has been written about his music. This major introduction puts Arnold into perspective, providing a comprehensive and perseptive commentary on his work.
