Marvellous Malcolm Arnold

Arnold was born in Northampton in 1921 and died in 2006. He was a composer, conductor and trumpeter. Sir Malcolm Arnold was a very prolific composer, writing for ballet, orchestra, choral groups, chamber ensembles and solo piano. He also wrote more than one hundred and thirty film scores.

Arnold began his career as a second trumpet player with the London Philharmonic Orchestra in 1941. He eventually became the principal player. By the end of the 1940s, he began to focus more intensely on composing. In 2006, Arnold received an Honorary Doctorate from the University of Northampton.

This composer had a gift for melodic writing. Included among his most notable works was his Guitar Concerto and his two sets of four English Dances (Op. 27 and Op. 33).

An Amazing Arnold Fact
