A full orchestral arrangement, in miniature pocket score format, of Four Scottish Dances Op.57 by Sir Malcolm Arnold CBE. A superb quartet of Scottish dances by the prolific English composer that was originally commissioned for the BBC Light Music Festival and premiered at the Royal Festival Hall on 8th June 1957. With varying mood and styles from jigs and reels to a more brooding ballad, the work reflects the tranquillity and beauty of Scotland as well the vibrancy and liveliness of its population.
