Description: After all the filets and big cuts are gone, we now continue mopping up the little bits of hors d'œure and sauce on our Alwyn plate with five first recordings. Except for the 1982 recorder piece, everything else here is from the 30s and 40s, as unabashedly Romantic and identifiably English as everything from this composer. Madeleine Mitchell (violin), Roger Chase (viola), Andrew Ball, Iain Burnside (piano), Lucy Wilding (cello), Bridge String Quartet, John Turner (recorder), Jeremy Huw Williams (baritone).
