A vivid and frank account of the life, times and music of Britain's most misunderstood composer.
Malcolm Arnold rose to fame and acclaim in the 1950s, composing countless film score and works for the stage that were characterised by a distinctive melodic style that captured the post-war optimism. As musical tastes shifted towards the distinctly anti-melodic avant garde, Arnold suffered severe depression and a tragic fall in popularity that would continue to fuel his illness. His dramatic personal and professional rehabilitation makes for a remarkable saga of survival.
Anthony Meredith and Paul Harris present a meticulous and detailed authoritative account of a true British musical hero and rogue genius.

Stafford GB
Well written and with good anecdotal evidence. A present for my partner, who knew a lot about Arnold, and yet found this to be accurate, fair and engaging.
