Happy Birthday William Alwyn!

in Daily Programme, Radio Riel Main

by Gabrielle Riel on Thursday, 7 November, 2013

English composer William Alwyn was born on November 7, 1905, making today his 108th birthday! In honor of this, our program on Radio Riel’s main stream today features his music, as well as that of his contemporaries.

William Alwyn was a virtuoso flautist and professor of composition at the Royal Academy of Music. His works were varied, from symphonies to operas. He was a prolific composer of film scores, of which he wrote 70. The music in our program today that is not by Alwyn focuses on the film music of other composers, both English and from elsewhere.
