The final volume of Alwyn's orchestral music in this landmark Naxos series. William Alwyn's prolific output included descriptive scores, and The Moor of Venice Dramatic Overture examines the turbulent central character in Shakespeare's Othello. The Serenade and the orchestral version of Seven Irish Tunes receive premiere 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.
