Sir Malcolm Arnold dies in Norfolk, England
(25 September 2006)
One of the great 20th century British composers. Sir Malcolm Arnold, died last Saturday, 84 years old, in Norfolk, England. Not so long ago, on June 29 2006, he received a Honorary Doctorate from the University of Northampton.
The upcoming 85th anniversary of Sir Malcolm Arnold's was going to be celebrated by BBC Radio 3 by featuring him as composer of the week. Decca recently announced a special edition with 61 works of his concert music. Also several concerts are planned where his 85th birthday was going to be celebrated, one of them being the inaugural Arnold Festival at the Royal & Derngate Theatres on October 21 and 22.
Sir Arnold won an Oscar in 1958 for the film music of movie "The Bridge on the River Kwai", the famous story of British and American prisoners of war in Japan who are forced to build a bridge.

Wow, I didn't even realize he was still alive.

I'll have to go home and listen to "Scottish Dances" and "Peterloo Overture" in his honor.

I didn't know anyone here really cared about this. I heard about his death a couple of days after he died. Had I known it, I would have made an earlier posting, when I was still in California.

:(
