Here conductor Martin Yates heads his selection with Richard Arnell's Sinfonia - effectively his ‘Symphony No. 0' - which was long thought lost. When Arnell's daughter arrived from the USA in 2009 to attend her father's funeral she revealed that she had found this score among the papers of her late mother in Lincoln City, Nebraska.

It is coupled with a long, dramatic, symphonic movement written in New York early in 1940, which the composer called Overture ‘1940', Op.6. Back in London after the war, Arnell was very active. He produced a suite - the so-called Dagenham Symphony - in 1952. This is very approachable film music, ending with a catchy march, music to which the documentary Opus 68 was actually shot.

Four years later came Landscapes and Figures - eight short movements with enigmatic titles playing continuously. Arnell tells us that this attractive music had its origins in visual imagery, and it is in his most persuasive mature vein, with memorable invention and brilliant orchestration. 'Landscapes and Figures should soon find a home in the ballet theatre', wrote one critic after the first London performance, and one can only agree that such lyrical and immediately communicative music would have been (indeed still might be) supremely effective.

'As they have demonstrated time and again in the past, Yates and his Scotsmen do their very best by Arnell, bringing his scores to vivid life, and the Dutton engineering team follows suit. An essential acquistion for all lovers of the English 20th-century mainstream.' Fanfare

'Sharp, snappy, vividly pictorial in its imagery - Richard Arnell certainly knew how to make bracingly attractive music. Committed performances from the RSNO under Martin Yates.' BBC Music Magazine
