William Alwyn (1905-1985)

Part Three

Wednesday 27 February 2008 12:00-13:00 (Radio 3)

Repeated: Wednesday 27 February 2008 20:45-21:45 (Radio 3)

Alwyn was a man of diverse and passionate enthusiasms: he wrote poetry and enjoyed painting, both as an artist himself and as a collector. Donald Macleod introduces a work inspired by one of his favourite pre-Raphaelite artists and plays the 1972 recording of Alwyn conducting his fiercely dramatic third symphony.
