First recordings on CD

Recorded at The Colosseum, Town Hall, Watford, April 7-9, 2008

CDLX 7208

In summer mood, Dutton Epoch's July 2008 releases concentrate on the delightful rather than the epic, and are headed by Richard Arnell's ballets The Great Detective and The Angels. Unheard complete since the 1950s, this music is a tuneful must for the many collectors who have enjoyed the Dutton Epoch Arnell Symphonies series. In fact, at the beginning of the score of The Angels Arnell has written: The Angels is an abstract, symphonically structured work. The form is intricate and is as carefully considered as if the work had been designed for the concert hall. It is, in fact, a symphony.' Squarely in the idiom of Symphonies No.4 and No.5, it is a powerful score, the Roundelay middle movement one of Arnell's great slow movements. The Sherlock Holmes-inspired ballet The Great Detective is uproarious and supremely melodic, and another glorious work unearthed and resurrected by Dutton Epoch. Both The Great Detective and The Angels are presented here for the first time on CD.
